Visiting The Municipality Where Most Of My College Memories Happened - Angono, Rizal.

 I was a Rizalenyo during my college days that last for more than four years. I studied in Binangonan, and Angono is my nearest go-to place as it is just one jeep ride away. 

Angono is a 1st class municipality in the province of Rizal, Philippines. According to the 2020 census, it has a population of 130,494 people. 

It is best known as the "Art Capital of the Philippines", being the hometown of national artist for music Lucio San Pedro and national artist for visual arts Carlos "Botong" Francisco, as well as the site of the Angono Petroglyphs, the oldest known work of art in the Philippines. It is currently campaigning for its inclusion in the UNESCO Creative Cities Network as it is a center for visual arts. It is also campaigning for the inclusion of the Angono Petroglyphs (1 of 5 properties of the Petroglyphs and Petrographs of the Philippines UNESCO tentative site) in the World Heritage List.

First created as a pueblo in 1766, Angono was a barrio of its neighboring town Taytay and Binangonan before it was legally proclaimed an independent municipality in 1938 by then-President Manuel L. Quezon.

By the way, after a few years passed, when I left Rizal and move to the Urban Zone of Manila for work; I had a chance to visit back the place where most of my college memories happened. There’s so much development around – a newly built mall, and so much progress occurred.
