Imus

A trip to Imus, the capital city of Cavite, feels like a trip back into the past. The city is filled with a number of historical sights, all of which played a significant role in the country’s fight for independence.

Imus is the site of two important battles in the Philippine Revolution. There was the Battle of Imus on September 3, 1896, which was the first major victory for the Filipino revolutionaries in Cavite against the Spanish colonial government. This battle took place on the Bridge of Isabel II, which was actually the first permanent bridge built over the Imus River.

There was also the Battle of Alapan on May 28, 1898, which ended with the unfurling and hoisting of the Philippine flag for the first time. In fact, this is the very reason why Imus is nicknamed the “Flag Capital of the Philippines.”

The Our Lady of the Pillar Parish Cathedral, also known as the Imus Cathedral, is another place of historical significance. The church still has the same structure as when it was built in 1795.

For the museum fans out there, make sure to drop by the Imus Historical Museum. Formerly the city’s arsenal for guns and cannons, the museum features moving dioramas of Cavite’s important historical events as well as historical reenactments of scenes from the Philippine Revolution.

If you’re the type who wants to get to know a place through its history, make sure to pay a visit to Imus, Cavite.
