LILIW: HOMES AND ABODES



These are part of the Laguna series which I didn't get to finish last time because of the NCAA project. These were all taken in Liliw. The main road which leads to the church has most of the old houses - regal testaments to Liliw's grand past.




Overlooking San Juan Street. Further up is Liliw's Catholic church building.





A most unusual architecture for the Church of Christ (how is this different from Iglesia ni Cristo?). It looks almost moroccan.

The three-tiered house that is home to the famous Arabella restaurant. Note that every floor looks different. The top looks rather recent.


What a waste...


Next visit to Laguna will be to Pagsanjan.

Those are nice photos if not for the electrical wires. However, you managed to keep us viewers to keep us interested in this post.

Those are nice old houses and I love taking photos of those. I had been to Taal in Batangas and have seen similar old houses that you photographed here in Liliw.

I might as well visit this place again if opportunity comes...

ara bela's low ceiling, as explained to us by the owner who knew my father, was due to its being a former stable or animal house. don't remember exactly
