Welcome to Ratenggaro
The remarkable village hasn't had much luck: in 1964 a fire burnt 57 traditional houses to the ground, while another in 2004 flattened 13 more. Government assistance helped to rebuild the 12 houses (and make them a tourist hot spot). They're supported by intricately carved columns, one for each cardinal point. Children are well-trained to welcome visitors and you're likely to see puppies just as adorable as the kids. Bapa Lucas is the man in charge, and he's all too happy to share his knowledge, translator permitting.
