San Francisco Del Monte

San Francisco Del Monte (also known as Frisco) is one of Quezon City’s oldest districts. It used to be a much larger area. Parts of Frisco have been made into Project 7, 8 and Timog. Today, it is composed of 8 barrios and is cut through by its two main roads, Roosevelt Avenue and Del Monte Avenue.

It is easily accessible via train and car. Roosevelt Avenue has its own Light Rail Transit (LRT) station on Line 1. Frisco is bordered by West Triangle (a known area full of good restaurants), Epifanio De Los Santos Avenue (EDSA), Quezon Avenue, and Araneta Avenue.

Frisco used to be called Retiro, as it was originally meant to be a retreat for Intramuros residents in the 16th century. Santuario de San Pedro Bautista Parish, located on San Pedro Bautista Street, is one of the first churches in the Philippines, having been built in the early 17th century.

A notable resident of Frisco would be local actor and politician Fernando Poe, Jr. (FPJ) whose ancestral home still stands along Roosevelt Avenue.

It is now far from the placid, hilly retreat area it was centuries ago. Today’s Frisco is now a busy district, teeming with residential, industrial and commercial areas. The largest shopping mall in the area would be Fisher Mall along Quezon Avenue. There is a diverse lineup of restaurants, with cuisine options like traditional Filipino (Pedro ’N Coi), Japanese (Sandaya Yakiniku), Mediterranean (Mister Kabab) and Chinese (The Dimsum Place).

There is an Ace Water Spa branch along Del Monte Avenue, where you can relax in the spa areas or swim laps in the pool.

Notable schools around the area are Siena College of Quezon City, Angelicum College, and PMI (Philippine Maritime Institute) Colleges.
