Galleria Taal used to be the ancestral home of Don Domingo Ylagan and Maria Martinez-Ylagan in the 1800’s. Composed of two sections, the early house, located at the back portion has a distinctive tiled roof and was built in 1870. Approximately thirty years later, the facade fronting the main street was built, roofed this time with GI sheets.
Domingo and Maria Ylagan had six children, namely, Aniceto, Rosario ( Villanueva), Candida ( Barrion ), Concepcion ( Sison), Julita and Juan Ylagan. The third child, Candida, married to Antonio Barrion, lawyer and a delegate to the 1935 Constitution Convention (1st District, Batangas), paid off her siblings and moved into this home in 1944 after their conjugal home in Batangas City was burned down by the Japanese army. Candida lived in this home with their three (3) children, Nellie ( Inumerable), Corazon ( Rodriguez) and Charito (Ahorro). After her death in 1975, the once stately home fell in disrepair until 2004 when a grandchild, Mr. Emmanuel Inumerable ( Manny initiated its restoration together with the assistance of his brother, Roberto, a civil contractor. Both painstakingly reconstructed the house, preserving the antiquity of the stately ancestral home.
