276 to 279 San Jose Ext, Padilla, Jardin de Miramar compound , Antipolo City 1870 , Rizal province
It had been 7 years since we last visited Casa Santa and Jardin de Miramar . Our group conducted a tour on the place way back in 2008 and 2009 for the Philippine Orchid Society and Philippine Horticulture Society . There have been a lot of improvements and additional venue at the place.
water lilies also add colors to the landscape
We decided to revisit the place and re-update our blog . The place had beautiful landscape lawn , more venue places , lush garden , a great venue / event east of Metro Manila. There are more interesting collection , lovely native orchids like Cymbidium finlaysonianum which is at least a decade -old and is blooming .
Dendrobium aphyllum , Dendrobium anosmum and Asplenium nidus naturalized on mango trees
Jardin de Miramar has extended its collection to other works of art such as the sculptures/creation of nationally recognized artists Mr. Ed Castrillo, Michael Cacnio, Daniel dela Cruz, Tony Leano, Ral Arrogante, mural works by Alfred Galvez; mosaic works by Hannah Liongoren.
interior with santa clause theme collection
” Christmas Everyday ” is very appropriate theme for the museum/ collection . It reminds everyone of caring , sharing and the spirit of giving for the less fortunate .
collection of different santa from all over the world
The collection of santa seems to grew from about 3,500 to around 3,900 plus from the last time we have visited the place. Not all were exhibited at the house. No two santa collectible items are the same , thus out-most care is given to the collection .
plates, cookie jars, table mats , mugs, spoon , forks
There are santa items from several countries from Russia, Finland, Portugal, Spain , China, Hong Kong , Taiwan , United States of America, Peru among others.
Christmas miniature villages
Some of the Christmas themed collection are also given by friends, relatives and even close acquaintances of the owner.
