Butterfly sanctuary that has been open to the public since 1974. It was established by the late Professor Julian N. Jumalon, a Fine Arts graduate who over the course of his life built up a huge collection of butterflies—both foreign and domestic—and set about nurturing them in his home which now serves as a museum and art gallery. The sanctuary is home to over 50 species as well as many different types of fauna. The guided tour, which takes about an hour, shows visitors all stages of the lifecycle of the butterfly. Most notably, the sanctuary also includes a gallery house where the water-color paintings and “Lepido-mosaics” (art made with the wings of butterflies and moths) of Professor Jumalon is on display.
