Pasig City is dubbed the “Green City ” of the Philippines and it is intriguingly divided into two: the West and the East.
The West part includes Ortigas, Silver City, and other areas that surround it. On the other hand, the East includes Manggahan which is much nearer to Rizal. Truly, it was a part of the province of Rizal until it was declared on November 7, 1975, that the city should be included as part of Metro Manila (NCR).
In essence, Rizal was more of a residential and industrial area but has become a commercial hub most especially after Ortigas Center was built. More buildings were put up for big businesses, hotels, and shopping malls. With that, more opportunities had come to the city, making it the best place for businesses to come to succeed.
Wondering what places to visit in Pasig? Check out the attractions in Pasig below.
Immaculate Conception Cathedral or The Pasig Cathedral
Founded by the Augustinian missionaries in 1573, The Pasig Cathedral is one of the oldest establishments in this city.
Bahay na Tisa
Bahay na Tisa was built in the 1850s and it has been home to seven generations of the Tech family. Some TV shoots were filmed here whenever the settings require an antique and old-fashioned vibe. Until now, Bahay na Tisa was occupied by the Tech descendants.
Pasig City Museum
A house-turned museum is another historical place in Pasig. Owned by a former mayor of Pasig in 1918, Don Fortunato Cabrera Concepcion, the Pasig government bought the house, and became a museum in 2001.
A lot of significant events happened here such as the visitation of former President Manuel Quezon, a detention center during World War II, and more.
Today, the history and significant memorabilia are the things that can be seen in the museum.
