Bahay Nakpil-Bautista | Things to do in City of Manila-Metro Manila
Bahay Nakpil-Bautista is a heritage house that nurtured revolutionary minds in the early 19th century. The heritage house was built and designed in 1914 by Arcadio Arellano, a pioneering Filipino architect at that time. Combining both wood and stone materials in a design called bahay na bato, the house structure follows a traditional urban style in the 19th century. Meanwhile, the intricate designs inside were inspired by the geometric floral patterns of the art nouveau movement called Vienna Secession. Its rooms serve as galleries, housing memorabilias of the heroes and revolutionaries that once lived there. It’s notable galleries are the Juan Nakpil Gallery, dedicated to the National Artist in Architecture; the Ariston Bautista Gallery, named after the doctor who owned the house; and the Oriang Gallery, after the wife of the revolutionary leader Andres Bonifacio.
