Capiz | Golden Nights Of Roxas City

CAPIZ | Golden Nights Of Roxas City

The Roxas City is the small Capital City of the Province of Capiz, and is my hometown. Warm Golden Lights lit up the Central Plaza every night, where the City's very own Catholic Cathedral, City Hall, The Capiz Provincial Capitol, The Colegio dela Purisima Concepcion the Archdiocese School, iconic Central Fountain in the Rotunda and the Roxas Bridge crossing the Estuarine Banica River. All this, exactly as I remembered since my childhood days.

 The western side of the Plaza, where the Monument of the National Hero Jose Rizal is placed, beyond it is the Halaran Plaza, a Hotel and Restaurant.

A city of proud and gentle people and what I am most proud of is that this is a place where you can walk through at night and feel safe. The Central Plaza itself though well lit is a place where lovers lounge to enjoy the passing vehicles, daily mass from the Cathedral can be heard from the outside of the church, so one can easily listen to priest homily's while enjoying the facade and the lavish architectural designs. The Capitol, standing proudly on the Eastern Side is littered with Capiz Shell windows, the very shell that gave province got it's name for.

It's a peaceful City, one that I would love to go back to every year to remember my childhood and the warm embrace of Roxas City.

The avenues and boulevard of Roxas City is a busy one during daytime, it's one to slow down during nighttime.

The gazebo serves as a Police Outpost during daytime, a good vantage point watching over the entire Plaza.

The church facade of the Immaculate Concepcion Metropolitan Cathedral of Roxas City is bath in Golden Lights.

Fire trees line up the avenues while on the distance beyond the iconic fountain is the Capiz Provincial Capitol.

Closer to the lights bulbs, these are the one's responsible for the golden view.

Beyond the fountain in an arch string of Lights is the Roxas Bridge that leads to Roxas Avenue, the City's center for Trade and Commerce, where most business and banks have their offices.

Not just the plaza, the Banica River is lined up with these benches.
