One of the Oldest Towns in Cavite

Founded in 1571, Silang is one of the oldest towns of Cavite. Some of its centuries-old structures are still well-maintained, like its beautiful Nuestra Senora de Candelaria Church.

This quaint landlocked town located in the eastern part of Cavite is bounded on the south by General Trias, General Mariano Alvarez, and Dasmarinas; and on the west by Amadeo.

Silang has progressed into a first class municipality. Coming from Manila, it is only about 45 kms. travel, and is the town before Tagaytay City.

Cavite's Largest Town

Silang is said to be Cavite's largest town. With more than 20,000 hectares of fertile soil and a cool climate, the town has become Manila's major source of fresh fruits (especially pineapples) and coffee. Its national highway (Aguinaldo Highway) is a tourist attraction by itself. Travelers often stop to view and take pictures of the pineapple and coffee plantations; buy fresh fruits at the roadside stands, stop at the beautiful gardens to buy ornamental plants, dishgardens & bonsai, pottery & other garden accents; inspect and buy unique furniture pieces made of giant roots and tree trunks for the garden and patio-bar; and buy attractively painted cogon grass drapes.

Silang is Hometown of Healthy Lifestyle Proponents

Because of the pristine,cool climate and fertile soil, Silang has been identified as the ideal place for healthy rural lfestyle. Urban dwellers often go to Silang's healthy lifestyle proponents like Gourmet Cafe and Ilog ni Maria Honey Bee Farm.
