Cavite is a historic province. Case in point: General Trias and Trece Martires, two well-known heritage towns in the province.
Named after General Mariano Trias, who was the de facto Vice President of the country, General Trias is considered as the third largest town in Cavite. It serves a host to various industrial estates such as Gateway Business Park, New Cavite Industrial Estate and Cavite Export Zone.
Other than the charming old houses, one cannot help but be in awe of the religious structures like St. Francis of Assisi Parish, Our Lady of Guadalupe Church and Church of San Francisco de Malabon. The façade of these churches alone is a living testament that history is written all over General Trias.
The seat of government of Cavite, Trece Martires is located at the heart of the province. Upon arrival, perhaps through Governors Drive, one will immediately see the monument of the thirteen martyrs to which the city got its name from.
The Provincial Capitol, or simply Capitolio, is a compound where a mini park and Emilio Agionaldo monument are found. Nearby is the Republic of Cavite restaurant and coffee shop and is a replica of Aguinaldo Shrine in Kawit.
