Feast on the freshest seafood while exploring Roxas City with this day tour. If you want to discover the attractions of Roxas City and try a gastronomic seafood adventure in the Seafood Capital of the Philippines, then this is the perfect tour option for you.
Your tour will begin once you are picked up by your guide within Roxas City. Dubbed as the Seafood Capital of the country, this is the best place to get a taste of the best flavors of the sea, but it also houses historical tourist spots worth seeing. You will first be brought to Panay Church, also known as the Sta. Monica Church.
The Baroque-style church will have you marvel at its tough facade, which was built using coral blocks. It also boasts of its bell, which was cast by Juan Reina in 1884 using only bags of coins donated by the people of Panay. The bell is currently the biggest in the country at 10.4 metric tons. It's so massive and powerful that when it rings, the sound echoes several kilometers away.
From the church, you will go next to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, where you can see a 40-meter statue of Jesus Christ. About six kilometers from the shrine is the Panublion Museum, which sits right next to the Roxas Bandstand. You will be given time for photo-ops at both attractions before you move to the Provincial Capitol for more photos.
Afterward, you will head next to the Palina River Cruise for your lunch. Feast on a variety of fresh and delectable seafood dishes that will surely make your mouth water. As you enjoy your meal, you will also be rewarded with a relaxing slow ride through the water. The cruise will bring you through a fishing village, topped with beautiful views.
Once you get off, you will next go to the Immaculate Conception Metropolitan Cathedral, a well-respected landmark in the province that goes as far back to the 1800s. You will then stop by Banica Dried Fish for some dried fish shopping, and Panulce and Spanggo, for the famous 'biscottini' and buko pies. Before heading back, you will also stop over at Kapiz Atbp., a souvenir shop, and Siguin, if you prefer.
