    If you're fond of seeing historical churches and bells, come and visit! You can hug the big bell or even take a photo inside the bell!

    It's my second time to visit this ecopark in Sagay and it still considerably satisfied me and all my friends. We rented a raft for Php 1,800 and pre-ordered lunch for Php 300 per head. We had some mussels, shrimps, oysters, fish stew and grilled fish, which we consumed with much pleasure during the cruise. The sights along the Palina estuary were very relaxing. We loved the breeze and the massage and pedicure services, too. The tour was so well organized and the staff members were all very friendly. Keep up the good work! :D

    An adventure worth coming for... it was refreshing to play and swim at this island, lots of fish and sea creatures plus very nice and courteous natives that can assist you to explore around the place..Its amazing how the local people remained simple yet rich with natural resources, abundant with sea animals, green forest and live corals that were carefully guarded and protected....

    There’s no entrance fee for this museum. But there’s a donation box if you want to contribute. There were no staff except for the guard on duty. He was very informative and offered bits of Roxas history. Someone should commend him.

    I thank my lucky stars for my tourist guide -- the head of the Provincial Tourism Board of Capiz Mr Al. Tesoro himself, toured me to Our Lady of Lourdes. It is owned by the Villanueva family.

    The Capizenos and Roxas City residents should try there best to preserve this historical structure for posterity. The word "there" is wrong, it should have been "their". Most likely either a keypad error, a dumb computerized speller, or simply charge it to one of my "senior moments".

    The renovation and restoration is now complete and it was a pleasure to walk around this Cathedral this morning. The church is quite busy with worshippers but there is still much to see.

    Good example of Spanish church architecture with nearby adjoined bell tower. Quite serene and graceful. A nice visit. In the heart of the City near to the municipal buildings and opposite the end of the Spanish Bridge.

    Well worth a visit of 30 minutes to an hour.

    It was already around 1300H when we decided to go here and it was a couple of minutes trek away to see this beautiful sculpture. We had this tricycle driver hired but he's only until the middle of the trek and waited for us but we're shocked he asked us of Php 200/ 3 pax charge; what's good is that the Sacred Heart of Jesus has a van for hire and we only paid Php 10/pax, the man who dropped us downhill is very hospitable, kudos to that!

    This is another promising attraction - boat ride passing by thick mangroves and they also offer lunch. We were unable to try this as our guide just took us there to merely introduce this as another attraction of roxas city.

    No one knows exactly when the ancestral house of the first President of the Philippines, Manuel Roxas, was built. However, it is estimated that it was built in the mid-1980's, It belonged to the Acuna Family, but later came to be more associated with the Roxas Family after Gerardo Roxas, the father of the future president, married Rosario Acuna. It was in this old house where Manuel Roxas was born and spent his childhood days.

    The house was closed when I went there around 2:30 PM. Luckily a lady who has a store right across it, helped me contact the house keeper, who opened the gates for me and guided me in my visit. She charged me 50 pesos for it.

    The house is a typical stone house, which was quite common during the Spanish era. Its basement, which used to serve as a garage and storeroom, is made of stone, while the upper floor is made of wood. Today the ground floor houses a law office and an antique shop. Upstairs, there is really not much to see. The original furniture is gone and some of the rooms have been restructured. There is a big sala, the room where Pres. Roxas was born, a family dining room, a wash room, etc. The windows are all made of wood with panes made of capiz.

    Given the small size of the place, it would take you only about 15-20 minutes to visit the entire house ... just enough for some selfies and quick shots of the house's interior. The house, by the way, was declared as a national historical site and a historical marker.
