Danilo Dalena's House of Paintings


Although Danilo Dalena's House of Paintings has no signage, it is very easy to locate in the town of Pakil, Laguna. It is very near the town center or plaza, just beside the municipal hall and basketball court, and across the famous Pakil church of St. Peter of Alcantara.

Dalena's house contains old paintings and sketches on various subjects, but usually about religious themes and particularly the church of St. Peter. Here is a view of hte church from the house's second floor:

According to the caretaker of the house, students usually visit here to observe the techniques employed in producing the various works of art. During the holy week, tourists who pray at hte church also visit the house to view the paintings and sketches. Here are some photos inside the house of paintings:
