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.

Fiesta Foods Philippines Cuisine

For festive occasions, people band together and prepare more sophisticated dishes. Tables are often laden with expensive and labor-intensive treats requiring hours of preparation. In Filipino celebrations, lechón (also spelled litson) serves as the centerpiece of the dinner table. It is usually a whole roasted pig, but suckling pigs (lechonillo, or lechon de leche) or cattle calves (lechong baka) can also be prepared in place of the popular adult pig.
