The South part of Metro Manila is the Land of the brave. Land of the brave? Seems legit right? But yes! It is totally legit as it will not just offer you its historical stories but also its unfolding beauty of sceneries. Cavite belongs to the region CALABARZON; this historical town is just minutes away from the city. Because of the developments through the years, the “far-from-the-city” town is now just a ride away. The birth of CAVITEX gave way to modernity to happen to this historical town.
Most of the real estate developments are now being planted in Cavite as it was seen as the next “home” of generation. Developments such as Bellefort Estates, Carmona Estates and the biggest development which is Lancaster New City are all planted in Cavite? Why? Because Cavite and its neighbor towns offers you not just a home but a paradise to live with. So I came up with 10 breathtaking sceneries that can be found in South. Some of them might be new to you, check them below:
1. AGUINALDO SHRINE
The Aguinaldo Shrine is also known as the “house of history”. This house of history plays a big role in the independence of our country, Philippines. Dated June 12, 1989, General Emilio Aguinaldo proclaimed the Philippine Independence day. Where? Right here in the window of his house in Kawit, Cavite. Seeing this house brings you back to our history right? Remembering all the revolution and bravery given by our Filipino heroes.
This historical house is built in 1845 which was made of wood and thatch materials. There are already reconstructions made as time passes by but definitely this house still gives the same chills as it was written on our history books. Actually you can visit and see it personally yourself in Kawit, Cavite. The museum schedule is from Tuesdays to Sundays at 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.
2. TAAL LAKE
I bet you already saw Taal Lake also known as Volcano Island. It is called Volcano Island because of its form, as it looks like an island placed at the middle of a body of water.

4. PEOPLES PARK IN THE SKY
Literally park in the sky, you can found the Peoples Park in the Sky at Tagaytay City. This is one of the tourist attractions in the place because of how amazing it was developed.

They were executed during the Philippine Revolution dated September 12, 1896. This monument is located at Trece Martires, Cavite. 8 out of 13 are Cavite natives. They joined Katipunan to fight for the Filipino rights against the Spanish. This monument commemorates the 13 martyrs in shedding their blood and standing up for the country. This is also a tourist spot as it is a historical place and event for us Filipinos.
6. MT. PICO DE LORO
Also known as the parrot’s beak, this is the highest peak in the entire Cavite. Many mountaineers are listing pico de loro on their hike list because they all wanted to conquer the iconic rock peak. The view from the peak is just breathtaking as you can clearly see the wide plains of Cavite and you can even have a view of the South China Sea. One more favorite in this place is the cool breeze at the top of the peak. Every mountaineer says pico de loro is worth the hike. At the peak of the rock will be the refreshing breeze from the sea.
7. BALITE FALLS IN AMADEO CAVITE
Every nature tripper’s best friend is the Balite Falls located at Amadeo Cavite. This is totally a paradise at it was just minutes away from home.

As a tribute, the late president’s birth certificate was left inside the altar for keeping. Most of the natives in Kawit claim that if you need healing and resolution to your personal problems you should visit St. Mary Magdalene Church.
10. MT. MARAMI AT MARAGUNDON
Same with Pico de Loro, mountaineers also love Mt. Marami which is found at Maragundon, Cavite. It is called Mt. Marami because there are plenty of rocks on your way up the peak (FYI: Marami is the Tagalog word for plenty). It is also known as “Silyang Bato”. As seen on the picture above is the formation of rock pillars that looks like chairs. This mountain is known for its bewildering trails. It looks like a labyrinth that will definitely give the first timers the lost of paths. On your way to the top you will pass by rivers, but upon reaching the top, it will be worth the hike. The breathtaking scenes will be seen and the cool breeze will be felt. Definitely a mountaineer’s “on-the-list”!
