Captivating Capiz-what to do and see in Capiz

Things to Do and see in Capiz...
spacer Historical
spacer Birthplace of Manuel Roxas (Roxas City)
Located in the city proper; a two-storey hardwood and stone house of First Philippine President Manuel Roxas, now a historical shrine.
spacer Moro Towers (Sitio Nipa, Roxas City)
Half-torn stone structures built in 1814 in order to repel the invading Moros and Portuguese colonizers.
spacer Capiz National High School
One of the pioneering educational institutions in the province, Capiz National High School (formerly Capiz High School) was established and completely organized in 1914. Its imposing structure and location (top of a hill) is always a welcome sight. Its 48-step stairway is a popular spot for picture-taking.
spacer Roxas City Bridge (Old Capiz Bridge)
The old and imposing Roxas City Bridge (formerly Capiz Bridge) remained strong and firm after it was built in 1910. Overlooking the Panay River, the bridge is a silent witness to various changes that ushered in progress and development in the city. Like the old bridge, equally alluring is the huge stretch of Panay River that transverses the very heart of the city. Passing the major edifice of the city, the river of Roxas City has been dubbed as the “Venice of the Visayas”.
