Samson y Montinola Antillan House - Iloilo Attractions

Samson y Montinola Antillan House

More interesting among the old houses in Jaro is the Sanson y Montinola Antillan house, a block away from Nelly’s Garden. The house is reminiscent of the Gaston house in Silay, Negros Occidental. The similarities can be explained by the fact that most of the rich families of Iloilo, at one point, all transferred to Bacolod, instigated largely by the spirit of unionism that had workers clamoring for reforms.


The Antillan House is one of the very few left intact in the country with ts trademark yakal rooftop carved decors, shuttered windows were cleaned, brick foundations, and intricate exterior painted mocha and pastel blue.
