Overview

This tour allows you to take a glance of Bohol's capital city of about 100,000 people, with its old houses and public market. Tagbilaran City has been called the City of Friendship as this is where Captain Miguel Lopez de Legaspi of Spain and Rajah Sika Tuna fostered and sealed a friendly relation between two nations through the Blood Compact (Sandugo). At present, reenactment of this event is done every year thru the Sandugo Street Dancing and Mardigrass. The Dao Central Market displays the abundance of the marine and agricultural products of the province. Every Tuesday and Friday is the market day (tabo), this is day where farmers and traders from the neighboring municipalities will converge in the central market to sell and trade their different agricultural products.

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Bohol Provincial Capitol

The Provincial Capitol building is of typical Spanish design with arcs and columns featuring the front faade. It is a huge stone building looking like a fortress of old. The seat of the provincial government of Bohol is housed under its roofs. It lies alongside a very busy thoroughfare with the Plaza Rizal just across the street.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Plaza Rizal

The Plaza Rizal is another attraction with wooden seats sporadically provided under trees where one can relax and commune with nature. Many pigeons inhabit the area which makes the place a favorite haunt for kids and adults alike. The pigeons are so used to the presence of humans that they just hop around when the kids run after them; sometimes flying off only to come back teasingly and land a few inches away.

The Plaza was previously known as Plaza Principe and it is located between the Capitol Building and the St. Josephs Cathedral. Flags of All Nations are displayed in the Plaza and during the national day of a particular country, the corresponding flag is raised. Some of the flags were donated by the foreign countries themselves.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: St. Joseph The Worker Cathedral (Diocese of Tagbilaran) - Tagbilaran

The picturesque Bohol Cathedral located along Carlos P. Garcia Avenue corner Torralba Street, just across the street from the Plaza, is another well-visited site. The cathedral is dedicated to St. Joseph, the patron of the City whose feast day falls on May 1. It is of Baroque architecture but remodeled after it was burnt down and now acquires a rather modern look. It is the seat of the Diocese of Bohol.

Duration: 20 minutes
