Title: One of the Very First Real Estate Properties in Cebu City: Inside the Yap-Sandiego Ancestral Home

Location: Cebu

The Queen City of the South is the first landing site of the Spaniards during their settlement in the Philippines. It all started when Miguel Lopez de Legazpi, a Spanish expedition commander landed in Cebu in 1525. Ever since their fateful expedition, the city was slowly filled with heritage spots and one of which is the quintessential Yap-Sandiego ancestral house.


The ancestral house is located in Parian Street near Colon Street, the oldest street in Cebu. The street was named after Spanish navigator Christopher Columbus (or Cristobal Colon in Spanish).

This classical real estate property in Cebu was originally built by Chinese merchants in the 17th century before being inhabited by Don Juan Yap and Doña Maria Florido. Fun fact: the ancestral house is the oldest Chinese house outside of China.

The couple had three children namely Maria, Eleuterio and Consolacion. Maria Yap, the eldest daughter married Don Mariano Sandiego, Parian’s barangay head at the time. Thus became the Yap-Sandiego ancestral house.

The house, which has been standing for more than 300 years, is still preserved with its original structure. The current caretaker, Val Mancao-Sandiego, is the fifth generation descendant of the owners. He is also known as a heritage advocate, a cultural choreographer and an art enthusiast. He put the heritage under his supervision and claimed that the house is a heritage spot. He refurbished the place by adding coral stones imbued with molave, balayong and terracotta. This real estate property in Cebu is filled with family heirlooms, antique pieces and ancient furniture.

Ever since its restoration, the house has been open to the public and is now a tourist attraction. It is open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. with an entrance fee of P50.

The Yap-Sandiego ancestral house is not only a heritage site but is also an integral part of Cebu’s history.
