As I was about to go home from work, I was met by some colleagues at the lobby. They invited me to go to Casa Gorordo cause they felt historical at that time. Since I've never gone to the museum, I joined them.
They don't allow taking pictures inside the house itself, dunno why; but we were able to manage some stolen shots. They don't allow it cause maybe a ghost might suddenly pop out in the picture. But so far, as I was uploading the photos, nothing came up; I hope it stays that way. hehe.
According to my friend, Casa Gorordo is the only house that survived the bombing during the war. I don't know which war, I hate history; hehe. It's now owned by the Aboitiz Foundation.The house has been restored as a house museum which showcases the elegant lifestyle before in the mid-19th century.
Anyway, as we were walking down the halls, it has this great, old ambiance. I love a house made of wood because I grew up in one. Besides, wood is colder; hehe. We didn't see any supernatural signs though. It was a good experience overall; being able to step on a very old house.
