Casa Gorordo Museum - The Ground Floor

The walls in the lower level are made of coral stone and fixed into place by a mixture of lime, sand and egg whites called palitada.

Typical of wood and stone houses in those days, the lower level, called zaguan, was utilized as a storage area for corn, fruits, and other produce from the family farm.

Built close to the edge of Lopez Jaena St., the main portal of Casa Gorordo was the door which the family and visitors used to enter the house.

The zaguan of Casa Gorordo Museum is a showcase of 19th century Cebuano way of life with its material artifacts.

One can see an ensemble of agricultural, food processing and weaving implements.
