One of the boarding houses in Bacolod that is open to the Public is the J&L Maranon Arthouse. Located at the side of Metrodome (on the way to the old bacolod airport) this house is the epitome of kitsch and eccentricity allowed to run wild.
This house is so bizarre that it is totally a mind boggling experience. If you’re a fan of the strange and esoteric and love conspiracy theories and hidden meanings, this HOUSE is a must visit. In fact, everybody should visit this house! (30 pesos admission)
From the start, this house is an assault on your visual senses and intellect.
Once you step in the garden it is overwhelming and kinda beautiful too! In fact it evokes the creepy feeling of being in an old house with huge figures of saints and angels.
There’s a staircase leading to the roof area.. so we climbed up…
We were in for a surprise when we got up.
After seeing the area, we headed inside the house where we each room seemed to have a theme. The entrance seemed to have a fairy land theme with wall murals of elves and fairies.
One of my favorite “rooms” is one decorated with shells and has soft blue/green light making one think that he is underwater.
We wish that we could show you more pictures of the house but we took HUNDREDS of pics and it’s impossible to post them all. Go see the art house for yourself! It’s a LOT of fun.
One weird error we noticed on the gates of the house as we left. The roman numerals read 2109. Oops! someone got their roman numerals wrong.
