Pamintuan Mansion

This historic house was built around 1890 by a wealthy farmer. In 1898 it was the headquarters of the revolutionary army against the Americans, and in 1899 it was the site of celebration of Philippine independence. It was occupied by General Arthur MacArthur in 1901, and was the home of Kamikaze pilots in 1944. It was bought by the Pilipinas Central Bank in 1981. The building is closed and not actually open to the public, but if you ask the security guards nicely, they will let you in, and give you a guided tour of sorts. Very interesting for those who like history and old buildings.

Attractions in Clark Freeport Zone

Nayong Pilipino

This is a kind of cultural theme park featuring replicas of historical places, houses of important leaders, and villages in the Philippines. Areas include: Colonial Plaza, Hero’s Plaza, Spanish Culture, Kalinga Village, Ifugao Village, Muslim Village, museums, etc. Events and exhibitions are held at the park, and it is available for private functions.
