The Aldea del Sol subdivision is in the village of Bangkal in Lapu-Lapu City in Mactan island. It has two house models–Redwood and Daphne–that are of Spanish-inspired themes.
Filinvest Land Incorporated, which owns the subdivision, considers Aldea del Sol among its middle-income projects and the cost of the houses in the subdivision ranges from 1.5 million (close to $30,000 using May 2006 exchange rates) for the Redwood model to 3 million pesos for the Daphne model.
