JIMENEZ HERITAGE TOWN
Be transported back in time in the iconic Jimenez Heritage Town which has over 100 original ancestral houses dating as far back as the 1800s. A stroll in the streets of Jimenez would make you feel as if the houses and the edifices themselves are telling their owns stories of war, peace, culture, and progress that have fostered in the place. Oh, if the walls could talk, what wonderful stories they will tell!
Two notable houses are the residences of Senator Ozamiz, the first senator from Mindanao and the Tac-an House which served as the printing press of the Japanese “Mickey Mouse” money during the 1940s. At its heart is the nostalgic showpiece is the beautiful St. John the Baptist Church which was declared as a National Historical Treasure and has withstood the test of time for almost 140 years.
