Heritage Sites of Ormoc


* Veterans Centennial Park, the Veteran's Park was constructed in early 1990's in honor of the Filipino soldiers who fought for the liberation of Leyte and the Philippines. The Centennial Marker was erected in 1998 to commemorate the 100th year independence of the Philippines. One gets a good view of the bay, the port and the plaza from this vantage point. It is a favorite rendevouz for the young and old alike for picnic, leisurely stroll on its verdant lawn while one experience the refreshing air from the sea and witness the magnificent beauty of the setting sun.

* Puente De La Reina, known as the oldest bridge in the city. Its cobblestones still intact, relic of an age long gone. It was built in the early 1800's but was completed in 1861. In Spanish era, the bridge was used as docking area for sailboats, vintas of Chinese, Javans and Indonesians who frequented the island to sell their produce. The bridge is still in use to this day. It is situated fronting the twin buildings of the Executive and Legislative branch and Ormoc Plaza and Ormoc City Hall at its side.

* Phil-Japan Peace Memorial, an impressive memorial marker put up by the Nagoya and Gifu Prefectures as a token of friendship of Japanese and Filipinos in the aftermath of World War II. It is situated in one of the city's picturesque hills overlooking Ormoc Bay. Japanese visitors frequented this area in memory of their beloved countrymen who fought in World War II.

* Mass Grave, situated within the City Proper, the site where the remains of Victims of the 1991 flash flood tragedy. Every November 5th of the year, a commemorative mass and laying of flowers is held on the area.

Agua Dulce Artesian Well, derived from its Spanish name "agua dulce" meaning "sweet water". True to its name the water that flows throughout the day is the sweetest and the safest among the six flowing wells constructed in the city during the Spanish time. To this date, only three of these wells are existing. It is one of the major sources of drinking water of the Ormocanons until now.

Fiesta Foods Philippines Cuisine

For festive occasions, people band together and prepare more sophisticated dishes. Tables are often laden with expensive and labor-intensive treats requiring hours of preparation. In Filipino celebrations, lechón (also spelled litson) serves as the centerpiece of the dinner table. It is usually a whole roasted pig, but suckling pigs (lechonillo, or lechon de leche) or cattle calves (lechong baka) can also be prepared in place of the popular adult pig.
