Historyland is the newest attraction in Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar

Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar is the country’s only heritage resort by the sea which occupies the 400-hectare land in Bagac town of Bataan. This beautiful hotel features the best of Filipino heritage and culture through the colorful stories as retold by owner Jose “Jerry” Acuzar’s collection of restored Spanish-Filipino houses.

In our recent visit to Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar, we're fortunate to be part of the launching of it's newest attraction called Historyland. It's an entertaining show that will bring life to iconic Filipino characters that played huge and nostalgic pieces of Philippine history. Here are some of the significant events that you will surely enjoy to watch in Historyland.

The Battle of Mactan

With the beautiful background of the sea, witness  the battle between the Flipinos headed by Lapu Lapu against the Spaniards. The fight was really intense. Some of them were fighting very close to the audience. No worries, it's only a reenactment and they're harmless. Expect to see the death of Ferdinand Magellan and feel the nationality through our blood and veins.

Execution of Jose Rizal

This is one my favorite scene in the Historyland. As we all know, Philippine national hero Jose Rizal lived his entire life to ignite change and inspire his countrymen.Though he lived his life quite short, his efforts to spark revolution and compassion towards the Filipino people and the country transpired to the freedom we enjoy today. Realize the contribution of our National Hero to the society and its impacts to the future by rediscovering the past.

The Cry of Pugad Lawin

During the show, I suddenly remembered my history subject when I was in grade school. The cry of Pugad Lawin is the event in the past I won't forget. Anyway, the tearing of cedulas is, more often than not, overlooked as far as our history is concerned. Know the significance of this action, from what encouraged Filipinos to finally fight for their country and the future battles that occurred.

Making of Philippine Flag

Before the start of the class in the morning, everyone should be in the school ground to sing the Philippine Anthem. Do you know who created our flag? Learning the depth of every symbolism in our flag requires thorough understanding. Each color represents a Filipino trait, creating a momentous design, which greatly speaks the collective stories of our ancestors. In fact, the Philippine flag we have today underwent a lot of revisions and HistoryLand will give us the opportunity to immerse ourselves in the making of this authentic Filipino symbol.

Fight for Philippine Independence

Do you know when and where was Philippine flag first unfurled? The Filipino national flag was officially unfurled for the first time on June 12, 1898 in Kawit, Cavite which symbolized the Philippine independence. Experience this live and in flesh at the first ever history amusement park.

Ambiance Actors

One of the perks of joining on this activity is you can take pictures with El Katipuneros, Sisa, General Luna, Maria Clara and Friars. You will also learn a thing or two from these icons in our history.

Parade of History

This is the main highlight of this attraction. Get a once in a lifetime experience with HistoryLand’s historical figures in a 30-minute Meet and Greet! The characters that are part of HistoryLand will walk through the aisles of Las Casas to have a parade for everyone to witness.
