Nearby attractions

Marikina Shoe Gallery
0.27 km away

Marikina Shoe Gallery houses the biggest pair of shoes in the world. Certified by the Guinness Book of World Records in 2002, the shoes measure 5.29 meters long, and took 77 days to finish. Made of genuine leather, the same pair can produce approximately 250 pairs of regular-sized shoes. Other than this display, Marikina Shoe Gallery showcases locally made shoes for sale. Created by both regular shoemakers and established shoe designers, the shoes displayed range from flipflops and sandals, to clogs and wedges, down to stilettos and boots.

Everlasting and Rellenong Bangus
0.91 km away

Everlasting is similar to embutido but in the shape of a llanera (an ovalshaped tin mould). It is Marikina’s version of the meatloaf, made with pork, hard-boiled eggs, red bell pepper strips and chorizo. The most highly recommended restaurant for everlasting in Marikina is Mama Ting’s, a small take-out shop. Mama Ting’s is also known for her Rellenong Bangus: deep fried milkfish stuffed with minced milkfish meat, carrots, potato, raisins, capsicum, pickles and spices. It comes in three sizes: regular, medium and jumbo. Generously stuffed and full of flavor, this is arguably the best rellenong bangus in Marikina if not Metro Manila.

Marikina River Park
1.54 km away

Marikina River Park lies next to the Marikina River, a catch basin of rainwater in Metro Manila. While it's the first to pop up in the news due to devastating floods, Marikina River could be charming, if not harassed by typhoons. Marikina River Park is open for picnic, running, biking, skating (it has a dedicated skating rink), and camping. The park also features the feminist statue "The Filipina Leader Soars High" by Juan Sajid Imao, the Filipino sculptor who built the immense Lapu-Lapu sculpture in Rizal Park, Manila. A few meters from the park is the towering statue of Maria Quina, a legendary woman who possessed sublime beauty and kindness. The lady statue, as well as the white carabao statue nearby, works as a rough measurement to calculate the depth of an incoming flood. Once the water reaches Maria Quina’ neck, nearby residents are alerted to evacuate to higher land.
