Throwback to Heritage in a Historic Home


Mira-Nila, or 'look at Manila', is a heritage house declared by the National Historical Commission of the Philippines. It was built in 1929 by Conrado Benitez. His wife, Francisca Tirona Benitez, is co-founder of the Philippine Women's University. Mira-Nila also served as residence of the late Helena Z. Benitez, former Senator and a recipient of Quezon City's outstanding citizen award, the Manuel L. Quezon Gawad Parangal. 
Though Mira-Nila is located in the busy district of Cubao, it is a reminder of a genteel era, when expansive lands and massive trees populate Quezon City.   used to be a hill that overlooks Quezon City.
