Attraction details
Reviewed 24 April 2016

My wife and I went to the House of Pacific Relations International Cottages today, and had a great time. We spent the early afternoon walking around and visiting all of the "Houses " from all kinds of different international countries. At 2:00pm to 3:00pm we enjoyed a wonderful concert put on by the House of Italy at 2294 Pan American Plaza, San Diego, CA 92101. The concert featured Music, Gelato, and Fun from the Jim Bianchi Italian American Ensemble. The Band featured Napolitan Tenor Rosario Monetti who was Awesome as he brought chills to your spine as he used his great Tenor voice to sing some classic songs. Soprano Kosondra Kazanjian was also very good as she sang some high notes for some great Italian songs. Carlos Velasco on Guitar played very fast and well. Jim Bianchi on Keyboard and Dan Ochipinti on Drums were also very good. We enjoyed our picnic lunch under some shade trees, and thoroughly enjoyed the concert and the world cottages. Check it out some weekend, you will not be disappointed !

The idea is quite charming and the snack options are quite welcome. However, they could do so much more to educate the visitor.

If you’re going to House of Pacific Relations International Cottages, and you should; make sure to do it in the weekend.
Every weekend the different nations serve local food and play local music.

I loved it here and was here twice during my 10 day visit to SD.

This is a series of cottages representing various nations within the UN. Each one focuses on a country, with a centralized gift shop. The gift shop has arts and crafts from various countries around the world at very reasonable prices. Unfortunately, the cottages are only open for 4 hours on Sundays. However, it is still a nice place to visit when you are walking through Balboa Park.

This is such a cool concept although we were not fortunate enough to see any of the festivals that ch country hosts. I love the unity this creates.
