Casa Gorordo Museum

The Casa Gorordo Museum, located in downtown Cebu, was originally a private home built in the 1850s Alejandro Reynes Y Rosales and later owned by Juan Isidro de Gorordo, a wealthy Spanish Merchant. The residence was passed down through the Gorordo family, with a total of four generations living there, including the first Filipino bishop of Cebu, Juan Gorordo.

Today, the recently renovated house serves as a public museum and national historic landmark filled with antique furnishings, historic books and documents, decorative arts, household items, period costumes and memorabilia from the Spanish colonial period. As one of only three remaining houses from the colonial period, Casa Gorordo offers an insight into what life was like during Cebu’s early days.

The structure of the house itself is a fascinating study in architecture, as it draws from Spanish, native and Chinese influences. The bottom floor, made from coral, was designed to keep the house cool during the midday heat. The upper floor was made from hardwood held together by wooden pegs instead of nails.
