Cavite

Cavite is a province steeped in Philippine history. This renowned cradle of the 1896 Philippine Revolution against Spain has borne witness to many historical events that have helped shape the country into what it is today. Discover Cavite’s glorious history and scenic natural wonders by paying a visit to this renowned birthplace of Philippine Independence.

Retrace the footsteps of Philippine heroes during those fateful days of the Philippine Revolution all around Cavite, starting with the Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo Shrine in Kawit. Aside from being the birthplace of Aguinaldo, first president of the Philippine Republic, this ancestral home was also where the country’s independence from Spain was first declared on June 12, 1898.

Catch a ride to Maragondon and visit the historic Bonifacio Trial House, where Andres Bonifacio, the Father of the Philippine Revolution, was court martialed in 1897. Other noteworthy stops include Fort San Felipe, site of the 1872 Cavite Mutiny, and the Tejeros Convention Site, where Philippine revolutionaries elected Aguinaldo as president of the revolutionary government.

Another popular historical attraction is Corregidor Island, which sits at the entrance of Manila Bay. Also known as “The Rock,” this heavily fortified island was the largest of four islands tasked with defending Manila Bay during World War II. Discover the island’s rich history by exploring the 830-foot-long Malinta Tunnel, the Pacific War Memorial, and the ruins of its Mile-Long Barracks.

If you’re looking to immerse yourself in nature, Cavite has a wide variety of natural wonders to choose from. Challenge yourself by joining a hike up Cavite’s highest peak, the iconic mountaineer destination, Mt. Pico de Loro. You can also trek to the hidden Malibiclibic Falls, relax by the clear waters of Balite Falls, or check out the underground river at Cabag Cave.

Tagaytay City, which lies along the majestic Tagaytay Ridge, is a favorite among tourists thanks to its cool breezes and stunning sceneries. Relax, have some coffee, or spend a night or two in one of Tagaytay’s countless establishments, which offer picturesque views of the iconic Taal Lake and Taal Volcano.

Pamper yourself in Tagaytay with a visit to the renowned destination spa Nurture Wellness Village or by dining at the elegant, country-style Chateau Hestia Garden Restaurant. And if you prefer to chill out by the sea, check out the province’s coastal towns like Naic and Ternate.

Make sure to treat yourself to some authentic Cavite delicacies while you’re touring the province. Some must-try Caviteño dishes include the pansit pusit (squid ink-blackened noodles) and tamales (ground peanuts and rice flour steamed in banana leaves).

You can also drop by Bag of Beans in Tagaytay on your way back down for a cup of Alamid (Civet Cat) coffee. Sampling this famous brew, made from seeds harvested from wild civet cat droppings, will definitely add another exciting twist to your Cavite experience.
