A visit to one of the honorable and magnificent colonial houses in Taal is certainly a highlight, but what is an overnight stay in such a palace from days gone by in comparison. Such a gem is the lovingly conserved and furnished Posada La Patriciana. The modern bathrooms of the rooms are a comfortable addition. The excellent staff complete the perfect stay here.
The house was built in the 1850’s but was restored to its former glory in 2019 (conservation work took 2 years to complete).
