The Roxas City Bridge

Roxas City Bridge formerly Capiz Bridge

The Roxas City Bridge is one of the most iconic landmarks of the City of Roxas, capital of the province of Capiz. Built in 1910 as Capiz Bridge, it was then later renamed as Roxas City Bridge, coinciding with the renaming of the municipality of Capiz to Roxas City.

The bridge crosses the Panay River with one end facing the city's rotunda and the Immaculate Conception Metropolitan Cathedral at the background. The best spot to take a photo of the bridge is Altavas Street located the southern terminus of the bridge.

To get to the bridge, you can simply take a tricycle within the city and ask the driver to drop you off at the cathedral. From there, you can just cross the street towards the bridge.
