Casa Gorordo Museum information
Downtown, in a quieter residential area, Casa Gorordo Museum was originally a private home built in the 1850s and purchased by the Gorordos, one of Cebu’s leading families. The lower part of the house has walls of Mactan coral stone and the stunning upper-storey living quarters are pure Philippine hardwood, held together not with nails but with wooden pegs. The museum was closed for extensive renovations when we dropped by.
