LEYTE ISLANDS PHILIPPINES



Leyte is a province of the Philippines located in the Eastern Visayas region. Its capital is Tacloban City and occupies the northern three-quarters of the island of Leyte. Leyte is located west of Samar, north of Southern Leyte and south of Biliran. To the west of Leyte across the Camotes Sea is the province of Cebu.

Leyte is one of the country's most historic provinces. It is the site of uprising against the Spaniards and the famous landing of the U.S. Forces during World War II. This historic consciousness is reflected in Leyte's seal with stars symbolizing the towns of the province and an alphabet on cross argent representing the ancient letter "L". The white cross indicates the second phase of Leyte's development, when Magellan passed through en route Cebu, while the upper portion commemorates the landing of General Douglas MacArthur through a perspective of the National Freedom Park. The capital City of Tacloban is the most important seaport on the eastern coast, while Ormoc City and Baybay City are the outlets on the western coast.

Bicol is noted for its gastronomic appetite for the fiery or chili-hot dishes. Perhaps the most well-known Bicolano dish is the very spicy Bicol express. The region is also the well-known home of natong also known as laing or pinangat (a pork or fish stew in taro leaves).
