Novaliches

Easily one of the largest districts in Metro Manila, Novaliches is home to many malls and important structures in Quezon City, although the barangay is still primarily residential. Novaliches even had a plebiscite in the hopes of ushering in its cityhood back in 1999 but most of the people voted against it.

Named after the general that protected Queen Isabela of Spain, Marquis of Novaliches, the district has been an important place in the country’s history. This is evident in the construction of the Parish of Our Lady of Mercy or the Nuestra Señora de las Mercedes, which is easily one of the oldest churches in the entire country.

The church was built in March 22, 1856. And not far from the parish is a huge tree where Andres Bonifacio and Tandang Sora used to hold secret meetings to conspire against the colonizers. The tree now resides on the grounds of the Metro Manila College and is still standing tall and grand, despite typhoons and other calamities, for almost two centuries.

Novaliches is the northernmost district of Quezon City. La Mesa Dam occupies the eastern side of the area and is the primary supplier of water in much of northern Metro Manila. Not too far from the dam is the La Mesa Watershed and Eco-Park, which has been a popular destination by both locals and guests; the park is home to picnic areas, convention centers, swimming pools, an orchidarium, and a large lagoon. The lagoon was even used during the 2005 Southeast Asian Games for dragon boat racing.

Other points of interest in Novaliches is SM City Fairview, Ayala Fairview Terraces, Robinsons Novaliches, SM City Novaliches, and Novaliches Plaza Mall.
