Batangas City

Despite being nicknamed the “Industrial Port of CALABARZON,” Batangas City (not to be confused with Batangas province) actually has a pretty relaxed and chilled out culture. That’s

probably thanks to the number of places within the city where locals can freely unwind.

Apart from the undeveloped, but still pristine, beaches that you can find at the outskirts of town, Batangas City also has two major parks where you can take in some much needed down time.

One is the Plaza Mabini, also known as the People’s Park, which can be found right in the heart of the city. It’s popular among locals for picnics, thanks to the big acacia trees that help keep the area shaded. The plaza also has an open-air stage that’s used for the city’s cultural events.

The other is Laurel Park. It’s known for its art installations, particularly the Heroes Promenade, a memorial dedicated solely to Batangas’ fallen heroes, and the sculptures of local artist Eduardo Castillo.

Batangas City also has a few places where you can unwind, spiritually. Pay a visit to the Basilica of the Immaculate Concepcion, just right in front of the Plaza Mabini. It’s famed for its early Renaissance architecture. The church also has an in-house museum called the Batangas Church Museum, where you can find religious artifacts as well as theological books.

There’s also the Museo Puntong Batangan to check out. The exhibits here show you the rich history of the Batangas province and the culture that it has to offer.

For those hoping to catch a panoramic view of the beautiful Batangas Bay, climb up either Mt. Banoi or Matoco Point, both just less than an hour away from the city.

Some may just view Batangas City as a mere jumping point for the rest of the province. But as you can see, it’s so much more than that. If you’re someone who’s hoping to get some down time from their busy schedule, feel free to visit this city to give yourself some well deserved rest and recreation.
