Fundacion Pacita: This stone studio was built by Pacita Abad, an Ivatan artist. She died of lung cancer December of 2004.

To quote the artist: "Over the past year, I also built a studio in Batanes, the island where I was born, which will enable me to be away three months of the year, to be alone and paint. The studio, high on the top of a hill, surrounded by pastureland and overlooking the Pacific Ocean, is built of stone with walls one meter thick to withstand the typhoons. The inside is covered with tiles, narra and mahogany wood, and high white walls for me to work. It is so wonderful to paint there, inspired and comforted by the sea and the people of the island where I was raised."
