Old Rizal Provincial Capitol

Old Rizal Provincial Capitol - Pasig
Located at Brgy. Sta.Rosa when Pasig used to be the Capital of Rizal and before it was declared as one of the municipality of Metro Manila.

A provincial capitol building was soon built for this new province, completed under the term of Gov. Jose Tupas, who served from 1906-1909. For fifty-some years, it was the seat of power of the province, not to mention a popular venue for celebrations like the Pasig Carnival of the pre-war years, which in turn served as an inspiration for a composer named Nicanor Abelardo to pen his famous masterpiece, the “Mutya ng Pasig.” (Muse of Pasig)

During World War II, the Japanese forces found use of the building as a prison where prisoners of war were kept. While it managed to survive destruction by war, for some reason, the provincial government decided to move out of the area as the capitol was relocated by 1950 to the property along Shaw Boulevard that was donated by the Ortigas family who then owned large tracts of land in Pasig, as well as nearby towns like Mandaluyong, San Juan, and Quezon City.

For a while, the old capitol grounds found use as part of an industrial complex of a company called the American Machinery Parts, Inc., better known by its acronym AMPARTS. Thus the area became known as the AMPARTS area, even long after the company ceased its operations.

Nowadays, the former capitol grounds lies in ruins in what is now a low-key, quiet neighborhood near the banks of the Marikina River.

Many times I wanted to go inside but all of my attempts weren't successful.

The establishment of PAMANTASAN NG LUNGSOD NG PASIG was truly a dream come true. For its founder, Mayor VICENTE “Enteng” P.

The Bitukang Manok links the Pasig River with the Antipolo River.

Heritage House of Raymundo Family

The beautiful old houses of Pasig as they stand today | ABS-CBN News
Just next behind Plaza Rizal is the Raymundo House, which has capiz windows on its two sides that face the streets. According to Tutay Raymundo, this was her family's ancestral house. Her great-grandfather, Julio Raymundo, was the first Mayor of Pasig. Julio's son, Cipriano, also served as a mayor.

A lady named Liz Selavan Odnumyar recalls that the house used to have a bakery, Panaderia El Pasig, on the ground floor. The bakery was said to have been founded in 1913. Interestingly, Baltazar Raymundo, who founded the Panaderia El Pasig, was the brother of Teresa Raymundo, whose daughter, Felisa Santos, owned Panaderia Dimas-Alang (more on this later). Rolando Magallon, a former baker of Panaderia El Pasig, said that the bakery closed down in the 1990s.


The Raymundos of Pasig are related to the Raymundos of Pateros.



Santa Ana House

The Santa Ana House looks similar to the Concepción Mansion (today's Pasig City Museum). It has a relief of Dr. José Rizal with the motto, "Aut Vincere Aut Mori (Either to conquer or to die)". My favorite house is the Alba-Javier House, an early 20th century house with steps on the side leading to the second floor. It is not in the best condition currently as the house has been repurposed as a car wash shop. I just hope the owners of these old but beautiful houses would continue taking care of these prized structures.

Ado's Panciteria

Ado’s Panciteria known to be the “The original Pancit with Chicharon” was established in 1952 by the late Librado “Ado” Castillo. What started as a small family business is now one of the landmarks here in Pasig City.
Before Ado’s Panciteria was recognized, Mang Ado had a barber shop. Beside his Barber shop was a small panciteria run by his Chinese friend. He usually would watch his friend cook. This started his interest in noodles. His friend’s panciteria did not bloom, and that marked the start of his own panciteria. With the help of his wife and his eleven kids, Ado’s Panciteria started! At first the barber shop and the panciteria stood together but as more people enjoyed this unique pancit, the family decided to concentrate on it. Mang Ado taught his kids the importance of good service and maintaining the quality of their products. From Bihon they added a few more noodles, all topped with the yummy and crunchy chicharon!

Years passsed by, more and more avid customers enjoyed every munch of Mang Ado’s Pancit. People in Pasig started to talk about the great food they serve and from a small Panciteria they were able to expand to cater more customers not only from Pasig but to other areas as well.
At present Ado’s Panciteria is still here and continuously growing. The same recipe, a different look but the same concepts to be of good service to every hungry pallete. Rest assured we will never stop improving to keep phase with the changes. We hope to see you soon as we share the legacy of Mr. Librado “Ado” Castillo that he has engraved in history.

Heritage House of Raymundo Family

The beautiful old houses of Pasig as they stand today | ABS-CBN News
Just next behind Plaza Rizal is the Raymundo House, which has capiz windows on its two sides that face the streets. According to Tutay Raymundo, this was her family's ancestral house. Her great-grandfather, Julio Raymundo, was the first Mayor of Pasig. Julio's son, Cipriano, also served as a mayor.

A lady named Liz Selavan Odnumyar recalls that the house used to have a bakery, Panaderia El Pasig, on the ground floor. The bakery was said to have been founded in 1913. Interestingly, Baltazar Raymundo, who founded the Panaderia El Pasig, was the brother of Teresa Raymundo, whose daughter, Felisa Santos, owned Panaderia Dimas-Alang (more on this later). Rolando Magallon, a former baker of Panaderia El Pasig, said that the bakery closed down in the 1990s.


The Raymundos of Pasig are related to the Raymundos of Pateros.



Santa Ana House

The Santa Ana House looks similar to the Concepción Mansion (today's Pasig City Museum). It has a relief of Dr. José Rizal with the motto, "Aut Vincere Aut Mori (Either to conquer or to die)". My favorite house is the Alba-Javier House, an early 20th century house with steps on the side leading to the second floor. It is not in the best condition currently as the house has been repurposed as a car wash shop. I just hope the owners of these old but beautiful houses would continue taking care of these prized structures.

Ado's Panciteria

Ado’s Panciteria known to be the “The original Pancit with Chicharon” was established in 1952 by the late Librado “Ado” Castillo. What started as a small family business is now one of the landmarks here in Pasig City.
Before Ado’s Panciteria was recognized, Mang Ado had a barber shop. Beside his Barber shop was a small panciteria run by his Chinese friend. He usually would watch his friend cook. This started his interest in noodles. His friend’s panciteria did not bloom, and that marked the start of his own panciteria. With the help of his wife and his eleven kids, Ado’s Panciteria started! At first the barber shop and the panciteria stood together but as more people enjoyed this unique pancit, the family decided to concentrate on it. Mang Ado taught his kids the importance of good service and maintaining the quality of their products. From Bihon they added a few more noodles, all topped with the yummy and crunchy chicharon!

Years passsed by, more and more avid customers enjoyed every munch of Mang Ado’s Pancit. People in Pasig started to talk about the great food they serve and from a small Panciteria they were able to expand to cater more customers not only from Pasig but to other areas as well.
At present Ado’s Panciteria is still here and continuously growing. The same recipe, a different look but the same concepts to be of good service to every hungry pallete. Rest assured we will never stop improving to keep phase with the changes. We hope to see you soon as we share the legacy of Mr. Librado “Ado” Castillo that he has engraved in history.

Rizal Boy Scout Council Headquarters

My HomeTown: Pasig City
Don Fortunato Concepcion donated the land and building of the Rizal Council Boy Scouts Headquarter. This edifice provided the prestige of the Rizal Province as the first class council and signaled a great stride in the advancement of the Scouting movement. This building was constructed in January 1949 and was completed and made ready for occupancy in one and a half month’s time.


Conferences, inductions, trainings and other activities were held in the Rizal Boy Scout Council Headquarters. There were also major decisions discussed, decided, approved and implemented within its Conference Hall. It really played an important role in the development of Scouting in Pasig.

Address: Caruncho Ave, Pasig City
