La Loma

Situated at the southwest of Quezon City (QC), this district lies at the border of QC and Manila City. It is composed of five barrios and two major avenues, NS Amoranto (Retiro) and Bonifacio. Because of its proximity to Manila, La Loma is often used as a rerouting area to those who would like to avoid the usual traffic going there.

The district is easily accessible via jeepney, FX vans and the Light Rail Transit Line 1 (LRT 1).

La Loma is famous for its lechon, a roast pig delicacy popular in Philippine festivals. It is frequented by people looking for lechon for their parties. Among the most popular places to get lechon are Mang Tomas Native Lechon, Mila’s Lechon and Ping-ping Lechon.

Apart from seeing the numerous lechunan (lechon stores) in the area, one will know that they are in La Loma from a number of landmarks. La Loma Cemetery is right beside the district; because of this, funeral services abound in the area.

Another notable place in La Loma is La Loma Cockpit Arena, the oldest cockpit in the Philippines. Several tourists and cockfighting enthusiasts flock to the arena to get a glimpse of a deadly fight between two roosters.
