Scenic Sunday # 103 : Divisoria Monuments 1 of 4

Scenic Sunday

Rizal Monument
Cagayan de Oro City, Misamis Oriental, Philippines

One famous landmark in Cagayan de Oro City is the place called "divisoria". Divisoria got its name, from what i heard and read, from the word 'divider'. that place became a divider when a huge fire razed the place. but now, that said divider is somewhat a big center island for the streets of T. Neri and R.Abejuela.

Divisoria is where people meet, to dine, to shop or just passing by to and from work or home. Every friday and saturday nights, the entire place becomes a huge market place, commonly called "divisoria night market". its has shoes, bags, apparel, food & drinks, and other merchandises.

appart from its people, commodities and sights, there is 7 unnoticeable landmarks that divisoria had. these are: an amphiteather - which is under renovation; a tourism office; a big gazebo called "Kiosko"- for events that needs a stage; and four (4) heroes monuments.

my entry will focus on these monuments which for me, makes Divisoria more scenic.

this is the monument for the National hero, Jose Rizal.

I remember having dinner in the streets many years ago but never got around to ask what the place is called. Our hotel was just a few corners away. I think this is the same place. Never knew it was called Divisoria. I liked it a lot too.
