Create an itinerary including 1730 Jesuit House
Get a glimpse into the lifestyle of well-off families and Jesuit priests during Spanish colonial times at 1730 Jesuit House. This 18th-century house served as the home of the religious community during its heyday, before falling from grace somewhat as it became a warehouse. Today, the building's owners have transformed it into a museum, where you can learn about Jesuit history. As you enter, pay close attention to the gate, where you can see a Jesuit seal carved into the finery. The exterior has preserved its original look, while the interior gives off a contemporary vibe thanks to a series of renovations over the years. However, wooden antique furniture captures the historical ambiance of this hidden gem of the city. To visit 1730 Jesuit House and get the most from your holiday in Cebu City, create itinerary details personal to you using our Cebu City day trip tool.

  • One of the best museums in Cebu. Huge thanks to owner Jimmy for keeping heritage and history alive for the people. It has been our honor and fortune to speak with you. Greetings from St. Petersburg, Russia.
  • Well-preserved structure! Just remember that the museum itself is inside the hardware store. Kudos to the owner for preserving this gem of history.
