Zamboanga City Things to Do: 29 reviews and 51 photos

 
 

One of the finest architectural exterior finishes of a city hall in the country I've seen, considering that this has been the government seat since it was built in 1906.

The building which was originally built as the provincial capitol is in record as the first concrete building in South Philippines. The beautiful interiors are made of hardwood cut from Zamboanga and worked up by local artisans. The exterior walls are of adobe stones while the roofs are of red terracotas. Very prominent is a belfry-like tower that protrudes above the facades roofline. The restorations done have made it look more elegant and eye-catching.

Address: Valderroza St. Zamboanga City
