"Limas", the traditional house
Another interesting item to see is Limas house,
which are still found, scattered over the province, most of them
built on riversides, however, not facing the waterfront. The daily
household activities can be done in full privacy, out of sight of
passers. These very ornate wooden houses that built on stilts have
rather sizable measurements from 15 to 20 m width and from 30 to
60 m length. A good part of the house has hand-carved columns, door
and window frames and cross ventilation between the rooms by placing
wooden panels with flow-through carvings just below the ceilings.
Indeed, it would almost be a must to observe the architecture and
style of these Limas houses, some of them open to the public.
