MAYOR’S MESSAGE

Welcome to Ligao!

Through the years, Ligao City and its industrious people has consistently risen to the demands of progress, working hard to earn a place of pride among the cities of Albay and the Bicol Region. Primarily an agricultural town, the local government and the citizenry strives to attain economic and social sustainability without sacrificing the idyllic, lush environment that makes Ligao a truly livable city.

We intend to achieve a harmonious balance between our aspirations as an eco-tourism destination of note in the region and an emerging commerce and trade emporium. After all, Ligao is home to the majestic Mayon Volcano, natural hills, caves, lakes, waterfalls, pristine beaches and more. It is home to the Kawa-Kawa Natural Park, which panoramic views and life-sized “Way of the Cross” sculptures on the distinctive caldera summit gained increasing prominence as a pilgrim destination. A sunflower farm complements our eco-tourism development efforts, in keeping with our Sunflower City status.

The wonders of the city never cease, as there are places yet to be explored;  a potential for growth yet to be tapped; a citizenry bound to the bounty of the earth, filled with pride in a way of life that respects and appreciates nature but is also open to progress. I invite you to discover Ligao and learn all about our beloved city and its many attractions.

We regard Ligao as a place “Where Good Things Happen.” Our city is open to you – our constituents; future investors, business and community members; homecoming kababayans and travelers. Let the good things happen to you… and let it happen in Ligao.

Ligao is a city “Where Good Things Happen.” We at the City Government of Ligao strive to make this possible, with transparency and accountability.
