110th Year Anniversary of Rizal Province

Rizal, is the province located in CALABARZON. The province was named after the country’s national hero,José Rizal. Rizal Governor Casimiro A. Ynares III on June 17, 2008 announced the transfer of the Capitol from Pasig. Its P 270-million capitol building, being constructed in Antipolo City by Ortigas & Co., owner thereof, will be completed by December. Built on 5-hectare lot at the Ynares Center, it will employ 2,008 employees. The New Capitol was successfully inaugurated on March 4, 2009, bringing back the Capitol Building inside the provincial territory that was gone for 33 years.

Rizal is bordered by Metro Manila to the west, the province of Bulacan to the north, Quezon to the east and Laguna province to the south. The province also lies on the northern shores of Laguna de Bay, the largest lake in the country.

Rizal is a mountainous province perched on the western slopes of the southern portion of the Sierra Madre mountain range. Antipolo Cityboasts of a wonderful view of Metro Manila and it is where Hinulugang Taktak, a waterfall popular with tourists, can be found.

 On June 11, 1901, the province of Rizal was officially and legally created by virtue of an Act No. 137 by the First Philippine Commission which during the time was acting as the unicameral legislative body in the island of Luzon.


Today, we went to the Main Capitol of Rizal in Antipolo City to celebrate it’s 110th Anniversary. At the time of 12 in the afternoon, we, voluntary students of CTLO (Community Training and Livelihood Office) went to the Capitol to witness the celebration of the province. Some district of Rizal came to the celebration, such as Antipolo, San Mateo, Binangonan, Jala-Jala, Baras, Taytay, Angono, and many more (I can’t remember all).

There were many guests, Politicians, Governors, Mayors, Teachers, Students and even an ordinary Rizalenians. Here, i took some photos a while ago of my classmsates in CTLO :) I love this day …
