Valenzuela

Nicknamed the “Vibrant City,” Valenzuela is just one of the 16 cities that make up the whole of Metro Manila. The city itself is pretty young, only being incorporated into the Metro in 1998.

For those hoping to get the history behind the city, there are two main places to visit. There’s the Museo ng Valenzuela (Valenzuela Museum), which traces the city’s history through various artifacts. There’s also the residence of Dr. Pio Valenzuela on Velilla Street, for whom the city was named after.

Another place of historic significance is the bell tower of San Diego de Alcala Church, the only remaining structure of the church from when it was built during the Spanish era.

There’s also the National Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima, which houses the wooden statue of the Our Lady of Fatima. Every year, thousands of devotees flock to the shrine to pay their respects.

The recently opened People’s Park is a must if you have your kids along or if you’re just looking for a place to relax in the city. The park has a small zoo featuring various birds, fish, and even a pair of monkeys. There’s a playground for the kids and some chessboard tables for the parents. There’s also an interactive color changing fountain that you can run through.

The city’s motto is “Tara na, Valenzuela (Come on, Valenzuela)!” But it’s not just a motto, it’s also an open invitation to come and visit this developing city.
