Leyte Provincial Capitol (Pamunuan San Lalawigan Sa Leyte)

Once the seat of the Philippine Commonwealth Government on 1944 under President Sergio Osmeña, Sr. Constructed in 1917, completed and inaugurated in 1924. The original edifice was renovated, expanded and beautified 40 years after.
With it's neoclassical design, the capitol hold its own charm, specially at night when the lights are illuminating its white paint. Murals depicting the First Christian Mass in the Limawasa and General Douglas MacArthur's Landing are standing beside both sides of the Capitol.
This building caught my attention when we’re on our way for a night out to Leyte Park.  The illuminating white paint is very attractive.  I was so amazed when I saw it standing there, glowing.  We asked the tricycle driver to stop; we had to have some pictures in here.
We were not able to see the inside of the building because it's closed when we went there.  But that didn't stop us from taking a lot of pictures. The best time to visit is late in the afternoon.

How to Get There:
The capitol is located along road going to Leyte Park and you can ask the tricycle driver to stop by there or drop you off there. Regular Fare is Php8.00, special trip is Php50.00.
