About Tagaytay and its History


Tagaytay is only a couple of hours away from the hustle-bustle of Metro Manila, which makes it a very popular destination for city dwellers who want to enjoy its cool climate especially during the summer. Being located in the highest point of Cavite makes Tagaytay the best place to enjoy the majestic view of the Taal Volcano and Taal Lake.

Brief History

During the Philippine Revolution in 1896, the forests in Tagaytay became a sanctuary for revolutionary warriors from surrounding provinces. In 1945, the 11th Airborne Division of Lt. Gen. Eichelbergerís 8th Army dropped military supplies as well as troops on the Tagaytay Ridge in order to secure Tagaytay City from enemies.
