Roca Encantada - Heritage and Summer House of the Lopez Clan

Roca Encantada
One of Guimaras’ famous landmarks is the summer house of the Lopez Clan built atop a hill, also known as Roca Encantada or “Enchanted Rock”. The house was built in 1910 in honor of Doña Presentación Hofilena Lopez. Suprisingly despite the modern exterior, the idyllic mansion is a “heritage house” as declared by the National Heritage Institute.

It´s "la isla de los 7 pecados" and it´s not Dona Presentacion, but Doña Presentación.
This is a lack of respect to the Spanish roots of this land,
