Plaza Rizal

Plaza Rizal on J. Torralba Street stands between the Capitol Building and St. Joseph's Cathedral. The open space of Plaza Rizal was first laid out in 1860 and has since been an attraction for people who want to spend some idle time or take a short break while touring the city. Wooden benches sit under the trees around the plaza, providing a good spot where people can watch the pigeons that roam around the park. 

The Tagbilaran Lion's Club installed flags of different nations at the plaza. It's customary to raise the flag of a particular country at Plaza Rizal on its national day to honor the occasion. Some of the flags on the plaza were donated by the respective countries themselves.

As a cultural center, Plaza Rizal is usually the venue of celebrations during the Ubi Festival every January. This festival features ube or purple yam, Bohol's most famous agricultural export. During the festival, the plaza becomes a busy site with exhibits, contests, and a motorcade around the city.
