Villa Sariaya

March 1, 2015

Hello from Friar Nikko and Maria Clara Janna!

We had the chance to visit Villa Sariaya, a declared Heritage House by the National Heritage Institute. It is located in Sariaya, Quezon, my hometown, which is truly rich in historical, socio-cultural, and religious heritage.
