Real de Acuzar Part 2

This is the second set of the photos I have taken in Ciudad Real de Acuzar located in Bagac, Bataan. This community of restored houses and buildings is spearheaded by Gerry Acuzar who happens to own the famous San Jose Builders. There are more than twenty houses and buildings already restored in the area with few more awaiting construction of furnishings. There are also plans of building a church there to make the community complete.

    I really think we should exert effort to preserve our old house. they make the Philippines unique in this part of the world. they are our heritage.....
