Located behind Noveleta Town Hall, Casa Tribunal bears an important landmark in Cavite's history. In 1896, the Magdiwang, a faction of the anti-Spanish Katipunan, killed Spanish authorities in this hall. Magdiwang General Pascual Alvarez killed Guardia Civil Captain Antonio Rebolledo. The Guardia Civil Lieutenant Francisco Naval Ayudante was also killed, while the rest of the Guardia Civil were imprisoned. This event further intensified the Philippine Revolution in Cavite. Over the century, Casa Tribunal served various purposes for the government. It was once the office of Spanish government in Noveleta, then turned into the Magdiwang's office after its capture. Thereafter, the hall served as a post office, a library, a makeshift classroom, and an office to the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR). It now serves as a temporary office to the Mayor's League. Inside you'll find portraits of Noveleta's previous mayors, and a Filipino-Spanish battle painting entitled "Tulay na Kalero".
One need not fly across the globe for a quick feel of the African savannah because found inside Cavite City’s Samonte Park are huge baobab trees. Planted in 2005, the trees were accorded by the Americans to the Filipinos as a mark of friendship.
Tanza Church, officially known as the Holy Cross Parish, secured its place in Philippine history on March 23, 1897. On that day, General Emilio Aguinaldo and General Mariano Trias took their oaths as President and Vice-President of the Philippine Revolutionary Government in the parish convent adjoining the church. General Artemio Ricarte was also inducted here as Capitan General of the revolutionary forces. Declared as a National Historical Landmark, the convent has a life-size exhibit depicting Aguinaldo and his men being sworn in before a crucifix. The three original church bells, albeit cracked and broken, are also on display outside the convent.
