In as much as the people of Ilocos Norte are clannish and traditional, they always come back to the ancestral house.
Whether of bamboo, wood or brick, the ancestral house is a treasure chest of heirlooms and memories. Families hold reunions during fiestas, especially Christmas. Special food such as lechon, kilawen, pinapaitan, pinakbet and saluyot are indispensable in gatherings like these. The façade of the Museo’s house is based on the Lazo residence in Bacarra. The visit continues along the section by the West (LAUD).
