The Martiniano Alquizola house, constructed in 1890, is a classic example of a Spanish Bahay na Bato in Barili. Like other bahay na bato structures of the era, it boasts a large rectangular design with two levels. The ground floor served as a stable for horses and grain storage. The house features an impressive wooden staircase, while ornate capiz shells adorn its 14 window frames, providing both light and ventilation.
