Heritage House Tour: Kapitan Moy Residence

The well-preserved property in Marikina celebrates old world grandeur

Shares

With different establishments and skyscrapers taking over in the city, we seldom see old houses and buildings kept in good condition. More often than not, these parts of our rich history are often left as is—with broken windows, peeling paint, and a dark vibe that seem to warn anyone who wants to come closer. Fortunately, there are still a few that we can visit—historical spots that were restored and maintained with the help of the owners and some institutions. If you’re looking for a new place to visit, you may want to travel to Marikina, where the Kapitan Moy Residence is located.

Just looking at the façade will take you back in time, with the ancestral house still sporting majestic columns, capiz windows, and an exterior that we only get to see in textbooks. Now serving as a prime reception venue, it has enthralled locals and tourists alike.
