Leyte Islands Philippines

Leyte is a province in the Eastern Visayas island group in the Philippines.

The Leyte Provincial Capitol in Tacloban became the seat of the Commonwealth during the Liberation of 1944.

It has murals depicting the first Mass in Limasawa and Gen. MacArthur´s landing in Leyte. Price Mansion used to be General MacArthurs´s official headquarters, it is now the governor´s guesthouse. The Redoma Residence housed then President Osmeña.

One of the oldest provinces in the country, Leyte is perhaps the most economically developed of the six provinces of the Eastern Visayas region. The province is a showcase of rich history set in an unspoilt setting. Testaments to this rich heritage, such as vestiges of the Spanish colonial era (early 1500s to late 1800’s) still dot the land. Well-preserved homes and buildings dating back to this era line centuries-old streets in most towns.

Desserts Food, Philippine Cuisine

As a tropical oriental country it should come as no surprise there are many treats made from rice and coconuts. One often seen dessert is bibingka, a hot rice cake optionally topped with a pat of butter, slices of kesong puti (white cheese), itlog na maalat (salted duck eggs), and sometimes grated coconut. There are also glutinous rice sweets called biko made with sugar, butter, and coconut milk.
