What people are saying:

Famous artist Julian Jumalon started this sanctuary at his home. It's now filled with rare butterfly species that are native to the Philippines that he continues to study. Attached to the sanctuary there is also an art gallery featuring some of his works, which was nice to check out. If you can, come early in the morning because the butterflies are more active then.

    Awesome place, very interesting

    Unfortunately when I went there were not many butterflies. They run an open garden, not one completely enclosed by netting, as many other places do, so the butterflies are free to come and go. Des...

    Science Project
