Journey to the “Seafood Capital of the Philippines” and explore the beauty that is Roxas City, Capiz. Indulging you to a varied display of pristine seafood and a myriad of historical and cultural charmers, this Roxas City half-day tour is sure to hook visitors from all walks of life.
After getting picked up by the private tour transportation, you will make your way to Panay Church, also known as Sta. Monica Church. The Baroque-style church, which is meticulously constructed with coral stones, is not just a place of worship but also a caretaker of history. Its bell was molded by back in 1884 from sacks of coins donated by the people of Panay. The bell is so huge that when it rings, its sound can be heard some few kilometers away.
Almost 13 kilometers from the church is the Sacred Heart of Jesus, where a giant statue of Jesus stands. From there, you will go to the Panublion Museum. The museum is home to various excavated artifacts, historical fragments, and traditional dresses of the indigenous tribe of Capiz, along with several memorabilia of the former President Manuel Roxas. The place is undoubtedly a gem to those who fancy local history.
After exploring the museum, you will head next to the Roxas Bandstand, which is only a quick walk away from the Provincial Capitol. You will be given some time to take photos at both sites before you make your way to the Immaculate Conception Metropolitan Cathedral, another one of the city’s well-known landmarks. The church has been built around the 1800s and resembles the unique architect of the distant past.
You will then stopover for souvenir shopping at Banica Dried Fish Market, where various dried seafood can be found, and Spanggo and Panuice, where local delicacies can be bought. Cap off your tour with a lunch at Baybay.
