Capiz Provincial Tourism Office

If there is one office at the Capiz provincial capitol that has been keeping itself so busy since last year, it’s no other than the Capiz Provincial Tourism Office.

With no less than the indefatigable and restless Al Tesoro at the helm, with his equally hardworking staff, the tourism office has been in the forefront in all practically tourism and culture-related activities of the province. In fact, there appears to be no let up in the holding of such activities since the assumption of Governor Victor Tanco into the post. To his credit, Tanco as well as his department heads has been very much supportive of all the tourism-related endeavors mounted by Tesoro and his staff. Slowly and surely, Capiceños, it seems, are seeing the beauty and importance of their cultural heritage, particularly in helping "sell" the Capiz province not only to foreign but also to domestic tourists.

It also helps that the National Commission for Culture and the Arts has very supportive of all the local tourism office undertakings. Its’ good that Sir Tesoro is maximizing his "connection" with the NCCA for the welfare and advantage of culture and the arts sector in captivating Capiz.

Roxas City Bridge

The old imposing Roxas City Bridge (formerly Capiz Bridge) remained strong and firm after it was built in 1910 overlooking the Panay River. The bridge is a silent witness of various changes that ushered in progress and development in the City. Like the old bridge, equally alluring is the huge stretch of Panay River that transverse the very heart of the City. Passing the major edifice of the City, Roxas City River has been compared and dubbed as the "Venice of the Visayas".

Mantalinga Island

A kilometer away from the shoreline of Baybay Beach, Roxas City, it has been identified by the Department of Tourism as an ideal spot for scuba divers and a perfect rotunda for sailboat (dilayag) and kayaking contest. Recently named "Good Luck Island" by DOT consultants, the place is believed by local fisher folks as source of luck when names of their fish boats are written on the sides of the island before it goes fishing for the first time.

Our Lady Of The Immaculate Concepcion Cathedral

The Roxas City Metropolitan Cathedral built in 1877; reconstructed in 1954 is one of the oldest in Panay Island.  The church is a silent witness to the events that has unfolded in the city over the past centuries.

People's Park (La Playa de Roxas)

Roxas City People's ParkFound at the end of Arnaldo Boulevard, roughly a three- minute tricycle ride from Roxas City Airport and a stone's throw away from Roxas City Seafood Plaza is a Seashore-manmade Park. With a cool breeze blowing "round the clock" and the sound of the ocean waves splashing against the park’s break water (when the tide rolls in), this place is ideal for family picnics at daytime and a romantic date at night. Take a guitar and just jam with your friends as it gives you a "Caribbean feel" with its mixture of "cobble-stone-feel" footpath, palm trees and the scent of the sea or just lounge and relax to a sun setting over the Visayan sea.


Municipality of Panay
