Zamboanga City (Philippines Little Spain) TOURIST ATTRACTION Fort Pilar This is originally a Spanish Garisson build during

their occupation in mindanao to guard the island against the fierce moro warriors waging war against the occupation of conqueror spain. later on a myth was told by the natives that there was an earthquake and the area was threathened by a huge tsunami but a lady stood by the seashore and wave her hands in the sky aborthing the tsunami, they beleived that it was a miracle and they built a shrine in the area to gather and pray.

Paseo del Mar Paseo del Mar is within the barangay of Zone IV and is only about 100 feet from Fort Pilar. There are several cement benches at the park and there is long walkway along the shoreline or break-water. In the afternoon when there are visitors, the bajao kids in their bancas paddle along the breakwater walkways and entice the visitors to throw coins into the sea water. It's fun to watch the badjaos dive and fetch the coin before it hits bottom.

Pasonanca Natural Park Located about seven kilometers from the city center, Pasonanca Park is the premier outdoor recreation site in Zamboanga City. The park, whose construction started in 1912, is home to various species of trees, flowers, ferns, shrubs, and orchids. It is also known as the Little Baguio of the South. Pasonanca Park has three swimming pools, an amphitheater, a convention center, and a campsite.

Pasonanca Tree House Pasonanca tree house was constructed 1960.

Pettit Barracks Pettit Barracks was the headquarters and home of the Spanish soldiers until it was turned over to the American troops in 1899, the place was developed into a beautiful barracks, home of the American soldiers and it was named after Col. James S. Pettit of the 31st Infantry U.S. Volunteer Commanding Officer who became the Inspector General and in-charge of civil Affairs of Zamboanga.

La Vista del Mar This resort is a popular swimming destination for locals as it's conveniently located only 15 to 30 minutes away from the town center or pueblo. Zamboanga City Golf Course and Beach Zamboanga Golf Course lays claim to be the oldest golf course in the Philippines . If not the oldest course, it certainly lay claim to having witnessed a great deal of the past century. It is fitting that this course, which once banned Filipinos, is now a public course managed by the Philippine Tourism Authority. Sta. Cruza Island The Sta. Cruz islands actually have two beaches. The other one has the more unusually pink-colored sands and sand bar while the other, smaller beach has the white, powderlike sands like those in Boracay. Apart from the beaches, the islands also feature a lagoon, a diving site, and a Muslim burial site.

Zamboanga Cathedral This place of worship located in Zamboanga City is deemed as Asias largest modern cathedral. Formerly known as Immaculate Conception Church, the cathedral was inaugurated in 1998. Its original structure was destroyed by Japanese soldiers during World War II. A marble statue of the Immaculate Conception designed by national artist Napoleon Abueva can be found inside the cathedral.

Jardin de Maria Clara This beautiful garden is one of the several newly opened tourists landmarks in Zamboanga City. Named after the late mayor Maria Clara Lobregat, the park is home to several species of butterfly, orchid, and rose species. It also has an aviary park for parrots, turkeys, and eagles.

ECOZONE Zamboanga Freeport Authority was conceptualized to be an economic hub that is designed to generate local economic activities that will serve as a springboard for the promotion of trade, investments, and ecology tourism not only in Zamboanga City but also throughout the region. By nature of its operation, Zamboanga Freeport Authority is

unique being both an Economic Zone and Freeport and is in fact the only Freeport in Visayas and Mindanao.

Merloquet Fall From afar, Merloquet Falls looked like a white curtain pinned to a lush forest wall just flowing in the wind. Up close, the waterfalls was even more dramatic and grander than it looked. LIST OF ACCOMMODATIONS:
