WATCH: Casa de Memoria Auction House Finds a New Home in a Pre-War Mansion
It opens in March 2019.
(SPOT.ph) If you're from the south, you probably grew up seeing the seven-storey mansion right beside a high-rise condominium along Roxas Boulevard in Parañaque City. The pre-war house was once known as the Villaroman Mansion; now it's called Palacio de Memoria—Parañaque City's newest arts and heritage hub, and probably the first of its kind from this side of the Metro.
Acquired by the Lhuillier family (yes, of Cebuana Lhuillier!), it is now the second home of Casa de Memoria, which is known for auctioning off European antiques and Old-World furniture pieces. Only two floors are opening to the public in March 2019, but everyone's already excited to bid for rare tables and chairs, one-of-a-kind plates and table decor, and never-before-seen paintings. Best thing about it? Everything's set up like an actual house so you'd have an idea on what the items would look in your own home. Don't miss the gorgeous terrazzo flooring when you drop by soon!
Palacio de Memoria is at 95 Bayview Drive, Los Tamaraos Village, Barangay Tambo, Parañaque City. It opens to the public in March 2019. For more information and appointments, call Casa de Memoria at 759-9804.
