Exploring Cavite

Known as the Historical Capital of the Philippines, Cavite has a long tradition in the struggle for Filipino independence. In 1872, the movement kicked off with the Cavite Mutiny, a rebellion against Spanish garrisons. By the time the official revolution against Spain broke out in 1896, Cavite was at the centre of the bloody fighting. As a result, Cavitenos are very proud of their contributions to the modern-day nation.

The city of Cavite juts out into Manila Bay as a sharp peninsula on the extreme southern end of the bay. Metro Manila is just across the water, just 35 kilometres by road and even closer by boat. Several important islands like Corregidor are part of the city’s territory. There is a strong military naval presence in Cavite City, supported by a commuter population of workers who work in Manila. Tourists will find Cavite a useful base for exploring this naturally endowed region south of the capital, particularly if they have their own transportation.
