Ormoc Superdome


The pride of Ormoc City, situated within the city fronting the Ormoc Bay. This imposing structure has an area of 3,782 square meters with a 5,000-person capacity equipped with modern facilities. This modern structure is a magnificent venue for socio-cultural activities such as conventions, conferences, concerts, basketball and volleyball tournaments and other related activities.


Riverwalk/ JICA Flood Mitigation Project

These river control structures along Anilao and Malbasag Rivers gave way to the rivers new facade. After the Ormoc Tragedy in 1991, this grants-in-aid project of the Japan Government was constructed in 2001 with almost P1.0 billion in budget and nearly P300 million from the Philippine government. The project aimed to provide sufficient protection against floods and ensure safety of Ormocanons living near the river and in the city proper. The walkway along the length of the structure was transformed into a riverwalk in 2006, with concrete slabs lining the pavement turning the walkway into a river park where people can stroll and enjoy the river view. Elegant lampposts were also installed for nighttime illumination creating a relaxed and laid-back atmosphere.

Saints Peter and Paul Parish Church

The oldest church in the city was constructed way back in 1556 when the Jesuit missionaries first set foot in Ormoc. This marked the prelude to centuries of Christian evangelization in Ormoc. Ogmoc was originally attached to her mother town Palompon that attained parochial independence from Hilongos on Nov. 12, 1784. A month after Ormoc became a municipality on Feb. 26, 1834, the Ormoc Catholic Parish with Saints Peter and Paul as its patron was formally inaugurated.
The church had recently undergone a major renovation in preparation of being converted into a cathedral. The church golden main altar and beautifully-painted interior add to its overall appeal that draws more churchgoers and devotees.
