Known as the seat of Nueva Vizcaya's provincial government, the Provincial Capitol Complex serves as one of the main points of interest upon visiting the province. It is dubbed as the "Luneta of the North" for its 8-hectare surrounding park abundant of vibrant grasses and elegant sites. The capitol park presents a neat presentation of the province’s most famous landmark that will capture the interest of tourists.
The Provincial Capitol Complex is located at the national road in the province's capital, Bayombong, and can be reached by tricycles, jeeoneys, and buses that pass by around the area. Since it serves at the official seat of the provincial government, there won’t be much trouble locating the place.
The capital park offers a good relaxation spot for those who wish to stroll around the capital city. The park features a man-made boating lagoon, fountain, picnic huts, wishing well, and sports facilities. What’s noticeably unique about the park is its lagoon as boating can be accessible with the handicaps acting as the facilitator of the boats. Not too far from the lagoon is the fountain which is a considerably good area for your photo op. As the park is equipped with picnic huts, there is nothing to worry about looking for a resting area. Alternatively, just like in Luneta Park, visitors may choose to have their own picnic at the grass spaces around the park. Aside from strolling around, there are also people who bring their own bikes exploring the area.
What makes this landmark a go-to for tourists is its relaxing ambiance, surrounded with many beautiful trees and decorative plants, good for sightseeing and picture-taking. Of course, the main attraction is the architectural building that houses the office of the provincial government. The building is a twist of modern and classic—a structural design that may remind of the government buildings in Manila.
If you’re planning a visit to Nueva Vizcaya, be sure not to miss out on the province’s heart and pride, the Nueva Vizcaya Provincial Capitol.
