The Municipality of Silang is a first-class municipality in the eastern part of Cavite province, under the province’s 5th district. The municipality has a combination of agricultural and built-up areas, with a total land area of 15,641 hectares.
Historically, Silang was founded in 1571 that led to a belief that the municipality is the second oldest town in Cavite. The name Silang came from Tagalog word “Silanganan” because of its cardinal direction in the province. In contrast, others said that it derived from “Isinilang” because of a church at the center of the municipality.
Silang has many tourist destinations, developments, infrastructure, and other essential establishments like hospitals, places of worship, schools, malls, and shopping centers.
In regards to its climate, people enjoy fresh air and cool atmosphere since the municipality stands on high terrain, surrounded by lush greenery and farms.
The following are main reasons why Silang, Cavite is a perfect alternative home location to Tagaytay City.
Located on the south-western portion of the Cavite province, the Municipality of Alfonso is a first-class municipality which belongs to the 8th district of Cavite. The upland town spans 6,998 hectares divided into residential, commercial, and farm lots.
The history of Alfonso— formerly known to be Alas-as— dates back when it was still covered with thick forest and originally part of Lumampong, a barangay in Indang, Cavite. The former name only lasted for 17 years because the Spaniards officially named the town after King Alfonso XII of Spain. Finally, Alfonso became an independent municipality, separate and distinct from Indang, on May 16, 1859.
The location of Alfonso is often mistaken as Tagaytay City because of its road network and tourist spots. This can also be attributed to Alfonso being able to offer facilities for various needs and wants such as restaurants, resorts, convenience stores, banks, schools, hospitals, and churches. The town is famous for wedding and event venues, earning for itself the moniker “The Wedding Destination of the Philippines”.
Being 478 meters above sea level, Alfonso has the closest elevation to Tagaytay City, making it the second coldest place in Cavite. With this, people can experience year-round cool climes with fresh, crisp air, and flood-free community.
Alfonso shares the northern border of Tagaytay City, which practically makes them twins. Thus, the municipality is the best alternative to Tagaytay City for a residential property.
