The Bamboo Organ of Las Piñas
The Bamboo Organ of Las Piñas, built by Spanish missionary Diego Cera from 1816 to 1828, is the only 19th century bamboo organ in the Philippines that has survived and is still functioning. Housed in the St. Joseph Parish Church in Las Piñas, a few kilometres south of Metro Manila, the organ was recognized in 2003 as a Philippine National Treasure by the National Museum of the Philippines.
