Cainta Sights and Landmarks Guide, Philippines

The entryway to the East, Cainta is also the Philippine’s esteemed producer of native delicacy called bibingka or rice cakes. Most importantly, its nearness to the bustling metropolis of Manila is making it an interesting stopover for any tourist to discover.

Tightly packed houses and neat roads meet you as you step on. The hustle and bustle of vehicles running around is a proof that an active lifestyle is cooking in town. If you ask a dweller about what nice places to hop to, he will cheerfully say the Valley Golf and Country Club. It is the most economical golf and country club in the Philippines. Before heading straight to your golf escapade, you will catch a sight of the refurbished Cainta Church that was consecrated in 1968. Adjacent to the religious site is Cainta Municipal Building in Rosepack development area.

A historical landmark called the Hunters ROTC (Reserved Officer Training Corps) Monument was made in honor of the courageous fights by Filipinos during the war maydays. Another reflection of heritage is the Lady of Light Parish that was once spoiled by war between the Americans and Filipinos. You’ll be made captive of the beautiful fresco of the city’s patroness painted by countrywide painter Fernando Amorsolo.

Get past with reminiscence, now drive yourself to the most favorite venue of formal meetings and assemblages which is the city’s piazza called Liwasang Bayan. When you’re travelling in the period of Lent, you will witness rituals of Christ’s passion and death in a traditional performance termed as Senakulo. Without doubt, you’ll catch salespersons trying to entice locals and tourists to buy their rice cakes or natively termed as bibingka. Its taste just complements the hospitality offered by every local you see. It’s one of the delicacies that Cainta is known for after it created the most gigantic rice cake before the new millennium. The Rublou Bazaar is a sophisticated shopping spot to catch.

It wouldn’t be a complete tour experience if you missed swinging by Cainta’s first-ever shopping avenue, Sta. Lucia East Mega Mall. Upon stepping into the mall, you are likely to sense that you’re somewhere in California or Boston. The classy interiors are reflective of a West Coast shopping hub, and so is the sky-scraping ceiling and windowpanes. Bistros, coffee shops, cinemas, game spots and fast food chains are in it, but the ice-skating arena stands out as the greatest magnet to shoppers and tourists.

Humbleness and hospitality are eminent in Cainta. Just as you tour around the city, you’ll affirm to that. Make it your doorway to experiencing clean fun.
