A visit to Tagaytay is not complete without a stop at Museo Orlina. From a beautiful point above Taal Lake and volcano, this small museum houses the artist Ramon Orlina’s collection of his work. An architect turned sculptor, Orlina’s glass sculptures are a yin-yang of smooth and jagged, sinuous and craggy. The museum has four levels, named after each of his children. A rooftop deck offers a splendid view of the azure lake. Lunch at one of the nearby restaurants and a visit to the museum make a perfect afternoon excursion from Manila.
As long-time Volvo owners we were pleasantly surprised to see the 780 as a canvass for artist Ramon Orlina’s recreation of Mondrian. Also see the Volkswagen beetle custom-painted by prominent artist BenCab.
