Standing obiquitous along McArthur highway is a historic house known to locals as the “Bahay Na Tisa”. Built in 1800 the house was initially owned by Capt. Valentin and was eventually transferred to Don Nazario then to Don Antonio Constatino.
During Dr. Jose Rizal’s visit to Malolos this Andalucian house served as his temporary home away from his home town.
Decorated with intricate colonial design you can marvel on how exquisite the craftsmanship has been given in building this home. Unfortunately the original roof of the house has been replaced with metal sheets from its original terra cota tiles hence the name “Bahay Na Tisa”.
How to get to Balagtas, Bulacan
Via McArthur Highway – From Monumento you can take a jeep going to Malolos and get off at Balagatas Municipal Hall. This is route takes longer and is quite a bumpy one.
Via NLEX – Take a German Espiritu Bus Liner get off at it’s terminal and take a bus going south (Monumento, Malanday, Malinta, Meycauyan) and get off at Balagtas Municipal Hall. Fare from the terminal to Municipal hall is just the minimum fare.
