AERA Memorial Museum at Villa Escudero PHILIPPINES: Picture of the Week
Last year, we were invited to visit Manila by Tourism of Philippines. Due to our busy schedule and work commitments, we sent our representative there on our behalf.
One of the attractions that worth the mention is this week’s “Picture of the Week”, AERA Memorial Museuem at Villa Escudero. Funded by Arsenio and Rosario Escudero, it houses alot of rare items, especially the religious arts of silver altars, gilded carrozas, ivory santos, embroidered vestments and intricately carved inages, all dated back in the 17th and 18th centuries during the Spanish colonial era..
Other than that, there are also lots of sculptures, Oriental ceramics from China during its Dynasty-ruling period, items and weapons from World War 2, and things that reflect the Filipinos, from the traditional clothing to some of the modern ones’ worn by important figures.
AERA Memorial Museum at Villa Escudero is located at the south of Manila, with approx two hour drive. This is also a very popular tourist resort date back to early 1900s.
