Old House In Quiapo

Old House In Quiapo - Quiapo Manila, Philippines
Photograph by Bernard Eirrol Tugade

This was just one of the remaining old houses in area of Quiapo that I saw during my photowalk.  The houses were comparable to the heritage houses in Vigan, Laguna, and Batangas; but unlike in Quiapo, these dilapidated abodes are vanishing amidst the busy metropolis because of the rising of contemporary enterprise and modern community living and nobody seems to care much for these ancestral houses that once were rich in cultural and historical significance.
