A Grand Welcome to Casa Santa: Review

 Jardin de Miramar is a well known party and event venue in Antipolo City. It is a 3 hectare garden complex that also houses "Casa Santa Museum".

Casa Santa is home to more than 3700 collections of Christmas and Santa Clause items.

I have never seen so many Santa Clauses in my entire life.  I was so engrossed in the tour I must have taken a couple dozens of photos.

Casa Santa



A life size Santa seats on the sofa (begging for photos, I guess)

I so love this cutie Santa, just 2 inches in size.


Working Santa, preparing his list of "naughty and good". I hope I made the good list :P


So many cute figurines, I can't decide on a favorite.  

The Christmas theme carries on Casa Santa's dining area.






Santa Clauses from around the world, line up the stairs heading to the mezzanine.


My husband's favorite part of Casa Santa is the Christmas Village.   

I just found my most favorite ~these charming Santas, just made me want to start my own collection :P

There are also Belen and Nativity scene displays.

This child's bedroom abound in Christmas items.

I enjoyed touring Casa Santa.  It was truly worth going there. 

If you are planning a visit to Antipolo, I suggest you include this in your itinerary.  Entrance is P180/adult.

Other activities offered at Jardin includes:

  • Arts and Crafts ~ such a painting animation characters in ceramics, Art 101 in canvas, and Pinoy games.
  • Kids would love Jardin's open play ground, "Galera" AND 30-foot Noah’s Ark.
  • See Santa live for picture taking (though he wasn't there when we visited, please call in first to confirm Santa's schedule before bringing your kids along).
  • View art works by awarded artists such as Ed Castrillo, Michael Cacnio, Tony Leano, Ral Arrogante, Earth Artists of Rizal, Reg Yuson, Daniel dela Cruz, mosaic artist Hannah Liongoren, and muralist Alfred Galvez.
  • Buy souvenirs ~ such as a huggable “SANTA-ko” rag doll, t-shirts, keychains, refrigerator magnets, that make for appropriate mementos of Casa Santa.
Casa Santa is located at Jardin de Miramar

    1. Hi Melisa, plan a visit pag-uwi ng asawa mo. Antipolo is also known for the Antipolo Cathedral's Lady of Good Voyage, travelers visits this church to ask for safe travel and return. I assure you your visit will be so worth it.

  4. Wow, the place is wonderful. Taga Marikina ako, madali lang pumunta pero baka di pwede pag may toddler no? Baka bawal kasi mga babasagin o kung pwede naman eh mahirap pa rin kasi di mapipigilan sa likot tong bulilit ko, haha.

    1. Whenever you are in the vicinity would be a great time to visit. You can drop by the Antipolo Cathedral, include a visit to Hinulugang Taktak and Pinto Museum to make the most of your trip. It will be worth it.
