A really beautiful way to memorialize and honor our national heroes. An avenue of heroes situated in the heart of the city is a lasting tribute to those who gave up their lives for our country.
PNR Lucena Station
A piece of history. Back in the heydays of the Philippine National Railways (PNR), the PNR Lucena Station was a vital drop-off point of South Main Line (Bicol), serving passengers and cargoes alike. Now only a landmarked ruin remains.
Dalahican Fishing Port
Lucena has always had close ties to the sea. Its bounty has served Lucenahins well, nourishing countless lives and families. Located 5 kilometers from the city proper, it is one of the regional fish port complexes being managed and operated by the Philippine Fisheries Development Authority (PFDA).
Port of Lucena
Always bustling with activity, as it serves as a major gateway between Luzon and the rest of the Philippines in the south, the upgrade of the Lucena City passenger port ushers in renewed vigor, commerce and trade.
Museo de Lucena
The Museo de Lucena situated at the old city hall building is the repository of collections, documents and relics of the city’s cultural and artistic heritage, represented by artifacts bequeathed by local residents through the decades.
Perez Park has undergone major metamorphoses through the decades, with each administration contributing its legacy. However, it will always be one of Lucena City’s most recognizable spots. Composed of three sunken gardens, this seven-hectare expanse of greenery fronting the Provincial Capitol Building, is a legacy of Governor Filemon Perez to the people of the province. A monument of the late President Manuel L. Quezon stands at its center.
St. Ferdinand Cathedral
The Cathedral of St. Ferdinand proudly stands as Lucena City’s most recognizable landmark, as it has been for over a century. Constructed in May 1882 and rebuilt in November 1887, this classic piece of architecture is the enduring physical representation of the local diocese that traces its roots all the way back to its first parish priest, Father Mariano Granja.
