Welcome to the infamous, little town of Cabatuan. It is located in the northern part of Iloilo. The town is typically filled with 50,861 people who are mostly farmers. It is said that Cabatuan is the heart of cultural and religious activities in the whole province of Iloilo.

A 24-km. drive from the city of Iloilo, Cabatuan is somehow sitting under the foot of the mountain. It is rich in historical landmarks including the San Nicholas de Tolentino Church, the town hall which was built around 1734, the Baluarte Shrine and the Tree of Bondage.

Historically speaking, Cabatuan isn’t only filled with landmarks but religious festivals as well. There’s the 10-day Tinu-om Festival taken from Tinu-om, a food delicacy popularized by the people of Cabatuan which is made of native chicken souped with spices – tomatoes, onions, garlic, ginger, and lemon grass and wrapped in banana leaves.

Around June 2007, the new Iloilo International Airport was built in Barangay. Duyan-Duyan, Cabatuan, Iloilo. It now serves all the departing and arrival of all flights in Iloilo City.
