Stopped here on my way to Laoag. Juan Luna was a prominent painter and political activist in the late 1800's and born in Badoc. Can go upstairs and see the lovely antique and parisian furniture, paintings and surrounds of his residence. Well maintained and attractive building, inside and out. Free entry. Spare 30 minutes for this site.

Been to the Ilocos Region numerous times but not in the last 9 years. Either I missed this one in previous trips or it was put up in 2007 onwards. This site is an ideal history-related tourist attraction for me: compact size with the best highlights/facts of the person's life presented in a visually appealing way. The guides were not... More

I love history that is why I love this place! You can find in Juan Luna's residence the replica of the controversial Parisian Life painting of Juan Luna and other Juan Luna paintings such as th Spoliarium! Antique furnitures are all around!

During our visit, the Luna house was being renovated, but the people taking care of the Juan Luna Shrine is generous enough to give us a brief walk through of Juan Luna's life and works, which some of the replicas are displayed in the garden.

Still closed for renovation but there are still guides that will accommodate tourists and tell the history of the Luna Family

Made the trip down from loag to badoc to see this but was a little disappointed it was closed. A nice young man came out and did give us some information and overall the people who restored this did a wonderful job at quite some expense which you don't often find in Philippines .

When the whole family passed by this place, it was closed for renovation. But we were still able to stay for awhile because there where copies of his painting on the exterior walls of the premisses. There was a man who was an actual tour guide of the place (he was wearing an ID) and willingly told us the story... More

It was a memorable experience to visit Juan Luna's house which was preserved with memorabilias on hand. Truly, he is a hero for our country for what he had done.

Great Filipino artist, internationally known by winning gold medal in his Spoliarium during the Madrid Art Exposition in the late 1800. A reproduction of the art piece is hanged therein. The house the famous painter once lived is well kept and the curator/guide was able to articulate so well the purpose of having this shrine. Very nice showcase of arts... More
