Kalesa

A Kalesa, a horse drawn carriage, was one of the modes of transportation introduced by the Spaniards in the 18th century Philippines. Back then, only the the nobles and high-ranked officials could afford these “wheels”.

 These days, they are rarely seen in the streets except in tourist spots and some rural areas. The kalesa driver is called a “Kutsero”.
