Draped in European elegance and infused with tropical touches from the archipelago, this National Historic monument is a pillar of Philippine history.

History of
Laperal Mansion

During the 1910s-1920s, various parcels of land along Arlegui Street in San Miguel, Manila were acquired by Doña Sabina Sioco y Rodriguez Viuda de Escaler, the wife and later widow of Don Manuel Escaler. The couple were cousins that belonged to a wealthy clan from Pampanga.

On April 30, 1929, Doña Sabina had transferred the property to her son-in-law, Rafael Fernandez y Santos, who had married her daughter Josefa Escaler y Sioco (who was also his second cousin).
