Casa Real, Dapitan, Philippines


Casa Real is the administration building and official address of the politico-military governor in Dapitan during the Spanish regime in the Philippines. Dr. Jose Rizal stayed here from July 17, 1982 up to March 1893. The Casa Real is facing the Dapitan City Plaza, Relief Map of Mindanao and the City Hall. It is a very short distance going to St. James Church where Rizal attended mass during Sundays and it is 5 minutes away from the foot of Ilihan Hill and Lourdes Grotto.

The Casa Real was almost similar to the design of the City Hall. The only difference was that the Casa Real had three balconies located at the front, left and right side of the building. It was demolished in the 1920’s to give way to the construction of a medical personnel dormitory of the old Rizal Memorial Hospital by the Americans. What’s left is only the marker of Casa Real.
