How I wish I could see what's inside!
I so love antique houses just like this one! :-)
I hope the families would continue to preserve them.

Sta. Rosa's very own. A true hero, Basilio Gonzales was a Katipunero who led Sta. Rosa locals in the Spanish revolution. In remembrance of him, his statue is erected outside the city's Gusaling Batasan which also houses the city library and post office.
The cuartel area covers more than eight hectares and is now being utilized by the Philippine National Police for training. Former president Joseph Estrada was briefly detained here after his conviction.
