Richness of Rizal
There is more to the province than what lies within Thunderbird Resorts Rizal. Let the resort be your (and your wedding guests) jump-off point to the many attractions in this hilltop retreat Natural, Cultural and Culinary.
Rizal is home to many natural wonders. The mountains and trails are perfect for outdoor lovers. It is home to many springs and waterfalls. The most well-known include the Hinulugang Taktak and Daranak Falls which are popular hiking destinations. You can catch a glimpse of nature’s delicate balance at the PACEM Eco Park within the Assumption Antipolo Campus. It features a mini forest, pond, 80 butterfly species and an aviary with many local and foreign species of birds. More exotic species are also on display at the Avilon Zoo in the town of Rodriguez. Be awed by the natural formations at the Mystical Cave.
Rizal’s mountains, the Laguna Lake, and other wonders continue to serve as inspiration for artists for over a millennia. The resort’s Eastridge golf course is guardian to the Angono Petroglyphs – 3,000-year old cave drawings etched on a rock wall depicting human and animal figures. More contemporary artists like Fernando Amorsolo, Carlos V Francisco, Nemi Nemiranda and Jose Blanco settled in its towns. Their homes have since been opened to the public as museums and art galleries.
The cultural heritage of Rizal’s many towns is also pretty much alive in its churches which can also serve as idyllic wedding ceremony venues. Some of them were built as early as the 16th century by Spanish missionaries who employed local labor and Chinese artisans to build them in a distinct architectural style. Among the most well-known is the Shrine to Our Lady of Peace Good Voyage in Antipolo which continues to draw pilgrims.
This province is not only gifted with refreshing scenery and artistic folk. It is blessed with a bountiful harvest. For an authentic wedding feast and special wedding giveaways, try Rizal’s known produce such as luscious mangoes, balimbings [starfruits], cashews and native ricecakes. Rizal also shares with Laguna many delicious species of crabs, shellfish and fish including tilapia, bangus [milkfish], kanduli [sea catfish], ayungin [silver perch] and biya [long-finned goby].
