    Our ancestral house in Guagua, Pampanga.

    Built in the 1930’s. It was owned by Doña Juana and Don Alejandro Lopez.

    In the 1935 telephone directory the house was named as “The Pride of Guagua Pampanga”

    When the Japanese invaded the Philippines in 1942, Doña Juana and Don Alejandro left for Manila.

    Almost all of the houses were burned but the house was spared.

    A Japanese (Colonel/General) saw the house and occupied it. (Sato/Makato)

    It was said that the dungeon below the house was used to imprison the filipinos and americans that japanese caught.

    It was said that some of these prisoners died there because of torture and were left there to die.

    It is also said that there were tunnels leading to various places in Guagua.

    It contained several jars(banga) and other artifacts.

    When the Japanese left the Philippines in 1945 Doña Juana and Don Alejandro went back to the house. And the rest is history.

    Since the Mt. Pinatubo eruption in 1991 the dungeon was buried in mud.
