The Provincial Capitol building is of typical Spanish design with arcs and columns featuring the front façade. It is a huge stone building looking like a fortress of old.

Stop At: Plaza Rizal, J. Torralba St., Tagbilaran City, Bohol, Philippines
The Plaza Rizal is another attraction with wooden seats sporadically provided under trees where one can relax and commune with nature. Many pigeons inhabit the area which makes the place a favorite haunt for kids and adults alike. The pigeons are so used to the presence of humans that they just hop around when the kids run after them; sometimes flying off only to come back teasingly and land a few inches away.
The Plaza was previously known as Plaza Principe and it is located between the Capitol Building and the St. Joseph’s Cathedral. Flags of All Nations are displayed in the Plaza and during the national day of a particular country, the corresponding flag is raised. Some of the flags were donated by the foreign countries themselves.
