My family ended our summer break vacation at “Bahay na Bato”(Stone House), a beautiful tourist attraction, located at Barangay Nalvo Norte, Luna, La Union. An amazing place with so many sculptures and other unique crafts that are made of stones and woods. The entrance fee is only P20.00 and there is a discount for senior citizen. But if you like to enter into the 3D Art Gallery, an additional of P10.00 payment. Before this is just a rest house of Dr. Edison and Dr. Purita Chan-Noble that is constructed along the beach with so many pebbles, then it turned into a tourist destination in La Union.
Actually, it’s not our first time to visit “Bahay Na Bato”. Every time we come here, there’s always something new to look at, and something good to learn. For me, this is a happy place where family can bond together.

What could be more fun… but to goof around the place. If you are tired walking around the place, you can just go inside the house and buy in their refreshment area. They also sell sodas and chips.
Plenty of antique tools for gardening, fishing, crafting, etc. are displayed in one of their art gallery building. For each room, they displayed the stuffs accordingly. You’ll never know, your great, great grandfather’s tools are already here. Who knows?
The 3D Dimension House is one of my favorites. Paintings from different talented artists, wood and stone carvings are displayed here. Uhmm! Who says kids can only interact here? The kid in me strikes again. I don’t like boring pictures. I also try what they are posing. Not bad, huh? And that was fun! For sure.
After our one and a half hour of exploration at ” Bahay na Bato”, what about a full blast of smiles from us with this signage. It only means that we are happy and contented of what we have seen and so grateful to Mr. Bong Kim (a Korean, who made those amazing sculptures made of stones and wood) for sharing his amazing crafts and also to the owners of this place. Lovely!
We only spend so little for our travel, yet its indeed, a fun filled day, to end our summer.
A simple reminder: If you visit the place, don’t forget to bring an umbrella or a hat and use sunglasses.
