La Castilla Museum

La Castilla was christened by the lady of the House, Mrs. Pelaez. Its grounds used to be part of a six-hectare property belonging to the Pelaez family; originally planned to corn and coconut along what was once a two-lane dirt country road that was known as Kauswagan Road. This thorough fare provided the only access to Kauswagan and the fishing community of Bonbon. In 1976, with the construction of the Marcos Bridge, part of the property was expropriated by the government to give way to the inexorable march of progress. Today, an abbreviated portion of the original grounds of La Castilla is all that remains of its landscaped gardens.

In 1968, six years after Atty. Pelaez transferred the campus of Liceo de Cagayan from its original site fronting Gaston Park across the St. Augustine Cathedral in downtown Cagayan de Oro to its present location at the junction of Patag and Kauswagan Roads (now Rodolfo N. Pelaez Blvd.), La Castilla also served as a guest house- until the magnitude six earthquake that shook Mindanao, Cagayan de Oro included, in July 1976 which precipitated the Founders’ decision to take up residence in La Castilla from the third floor of what has always been their residence in Rizal Street in the Poblacion. La Castilla then served as their home until the demise of Atty. Pelaez on August 10, 1980. (Source)

La Castilla was the summer residence of Atty. Rodolfo N. Pelaez and his wife Elsa Pelaez- Pelaez, and of vignettes in their lives that revolved around it.

For a tour at the museum, you can arrange with the curator Mr. Emmanuel Echem.

General Douglas MacArthur Marker is located at the edge of the Macabalan Wharf.

General Douglas MacArthur landed in Macabalan Wharf aboard PT 41 boat under the command of Lieutenant John Duncan Bulkeley. Extremely pleased with Bulkeley’s effort to steer their boat clear from the sight of their Japanese enemies, Gen. MacArthur reportedly declared, “Bulkeley, I’m giving every officer and man here the Silver Star for Gallantry. You’ve taken me out of the jaws of death and I wont forget it.” A Cagayanon, then Capt. Fidencio Laplap, now 87 years old and still alive, is one of those who were later awarded the Silver Star for gallantry promised by Gen. MacArthur. After landing at the Macabalan Wharf, MacArthur, together with his family and military entourage then proceeded to Del Monte Clubhouse for his departure to Australiaon a B-17 Flying Fortress where he made the famous declaration, “Upon orders of the President of the United States, I came through the Japanese blockade, and I shall return.”

Gaston Park

jcp-8(Source)

Named after a pre-war Municipal Mayor of Cagayan de Oro, Segundo Gaston, the park is located near the St. Augustine Cathedral and the Archbishop’s Palace. Gaston Park was the main plaza of Cagayan de Misamis  during  the  Spanish  colonial period. It served as the training ground of local patriots during the Philippine-American War. Later it became the site of the Battle of Cagayan de Misamis on April 7, 1900. A National Historical Institute marker was placed in the park  in 2000.

On one side of the park, the one near San Agustin Cathedral, a marker was erected in memory of Kagay-anons who lost their lives when Typhoon Sendong heaped its fury on the city back in December of 2011.

Another marker that you will find at Gaston Park is the Siete de Abril marker, which is a summarized account of the events that took place during the Labanan sa Cagayan de Misamis. (Source)
