    Occupying a vast tract of land that is part of San Pablo City in Laguna and the towns of Tiaong and Dolores in Quezon, Villa Escudero was purchased in 1880 by Placido Escudero, a Spaniard, and his wife Claudia Marasigan. It served as a sanctuary to the revolutionist against the Spaniards and the Americans, 1897–1901. Arsenio Escudero and his wife Rosario Adap provided refuge to Filipino and American soldiers who retreated from the south and proceeded to Bataan in 1941. For organizing a group of guerillas who fought against the Japanese in 1942, both Placido and Arsenio Escudero were arrested and tortured by the enemy. A historical villa of freedom during the Spanish, American and Japanese occupation. (English)
