Antipolo: Pinto Art Museum




View of The City
The Pinto Art Museum is one of the best places to see contemporary Philippine Art. This museum is hanging on a mountain that provides the most excellent view of Metro Manila. I think it has the best private collection of Filipino paintings, sculptures, and art installations in Metro Manila if not the Philippines. All of these collections are placed inside Mediterranean inspired villas with manicured gardens and spacious rooftops. 


I never thought something like this would exist in Antipolo or even in Metro Manila. This place is hard to find but well worth the trip. In general, it was a very relaxing experience. I think this should be part of an itinerary of any art loving tourist.  This is a great place to renew the mind and appreciate all kinds of art.  If you love art or at least some interest in it you will really love the collections. Each corner is pure beauty and photogenic.  I think you cannot get a bad picture here because everything is artsy and in our generation what we call “instagrammable”. It’s a great way to spend your day. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and just want to relax and see a different side of Manila then Pinto Art Museum will be the perfect place for you.
