The first ancestral home to open its doors to tourists, it houses Ramon Hofileňa’s Collection of paintings by the renowned artists from the 19th century to the present –Luna ,Hidalgo, Amorsolo,Manansala to name a few. One can also spend the entire day chatting with amiable Ramon on everything from history, culture and arts to local and national intrigue that you won’t catch in your history books. The house is a classic take on the American introduced “tsalet” as interpreted by Negrense sensibilities.
