Remember that so-called “Cinderella House” along Capistrano Street in downtown Cagayan de Oro? It’s now totally gone after workers completely demolished the structure which has been a fixture among famed ancestral homes in the city.

Below is the house before the demolition. It’s unique architecture often reminds passersby and motorists of a fairy tale ala Cinderella.

  • tsk.tsk.tsk.. What a waste. CDO gov’t must do something about this before it’s too late..?

  • Mya

    Sad to see a heritage building gone. Our govt should create a body for preserving historical sites

  • RFM

    The government has no right over a private property. It is the prerogative of the owner what to with the private property.

  • silingan

    Lady owner was murdered inside the house a few years case you didn’t know..

    • onsay ful story ana?


    Evrytime ga agi me ana. Gaka hadlok jud ko. Pero even though na it looks very old. I can still see the beauty of that house.

  • I lived and grew up next to that beautiful snd stunning typical spanish mansion on Capistrano abd Antonio Luna streets CDO.. I just don’t really know the rationale why it was demolished .. It might had a new owner .,the Gov’t has no hold on it, unless the owner has the intension to preserve such structure .. Pero kanang giingon nila na hunted o horror house , that is not true…mga “hearsays ” kang yan ..

    Rumors that a Highrise Condo will be built to that property, not confirm though 😀

      After that demolition, how’s the place going to be? I always adored that house every time I passed by it to pay a visit for my late uncle/auntie (Lancero/Caagbay) nearby..

    They dont know what it is to be treasured. Consequences right then be served.
