Sto. Niño Shrine and Romualdez Museum

The Sto. Nino Shrine and Romualdez Museum used to be one of the rest houses of the Marcos family.  Considered to be one of the top tourist attractions in Tacloban City, the ground floor houses a chapel, with the image of the Sto. Niño at the center and surrounded by locally-themed guest rooms depicting characteristics of the different provinces/places in the country.

The second floor houses the large ballroom, dining halls and the bedrooms of each member of the former first family. The house is modest outside but is intricately designed and adorned inside.
