If you’re planning to move in a house and lot for sale in Laguna, this may be one of the most significant investments of your life. Laguna is a province situated just two hours away from the southeast of Metro Manila. Aside from being recognized as the “Resort Capital of the Philippines” the illustrious province is also home to Liliw, which is a highland town nestled at the foot of the beautiful Mt. Banahaw.
Here are some of Liliw, Laguna’s other main attractions:
Gat Tayaw Street
Liliw’s enormous shoe industry is the reason why the municipality is dubbed as the “shoe capital” of the Philippines. From trendy slippers to sturdy shoes, the small town has it all for your footwear needs. Aside from its diverse collection of affordable shoes and slippers, Liliw also hosts the annual “Liliw Gat Tayaw Tsinelas Festival” where shoe stores are adorned with oversized footwear. This colorful event also highlights the parade of floats featuring agricultural and industrial products of Liliw, Katutubong Palaro, Gabi ng Harana, a parade of bird mascots, music and art. The festival is celebrated from the 26th of April to the 1st of May.
St. John the Baptist Church
The old church is a cultural landmark that the municipality boasts of. Its red-bricked façade and baroque architectural style are some of its key characteristics but what makes the church stand out is its ambience. Inside, you will be welcomed with the comfort of the warm rays of the sun which makes it a perfect place for meditation and prayer. Saint John The Baptist Parish was founded in 1605. Its original structure was badly damaged during a strong earthquake in 1880 and was even partly burned in 1898 but the church proved its resilience.
This church serves as the testament of Liliw’s strong foundation.
This breathtaking wonder of nature is located at the foot of Mt. Banahaw. Some call it Bukal or Maimpis Falls. Its crystal clear waters and crimson-colored rocks are perfect for a summer escapade with your family or friends. Kilangin Falls lies between the boundary of Liliw and Majayjay. This awe-inspiring tourist spot is one of the must-try natural pools in the Philippines. It’s no wonder that houses and lots for sale in Laguna are in-demand due to its booming tourism.
Uraro cookies are powdery snacks that are made from arrowroot flour mixed with butter and condensed milk. These are usually designed with floral patterns baked in a pugon fired by coconut husks. Pair them off with a cup of coffee and it’s the perfect combination of a light and yummy merienda.
Inuman has always been a staple to every Filipino celebration. May it be a birthday party, a fiesta, or a simple get-together; there is the presence of wine, beer or coconut vodka (lambanog).
The small municipality of Liliw is the birthplace of some of the best lambanog products in the country. These are produced by fermenting the coconut tree sap and are distilled later on. You can now exchange stories and jokes with your buddies while drinking lambanog (Just be sure to drink in moderation).
