Melting Pot of Central Luzon, Tarlac -

2011-04-06 1 271 - Tarlac, which covers a total land area of 2,736.6 square kilometers, may not be the best place to go if you're planning a white-sand beach holiday. But unlike any other province in the country, Tarlac has witnessed a lot of events that were instrumental in shaping the Philippines the way it is now.Dubbed as "Melting Pot of Central Luzon," Tarlac was one of the first provinces to revolt against the Spaniards in 1896. It also became the new seat of the republic when the country's first president, Emilio Aguinaldo, abandoned the former capital, Malolos, Bulacan. Tarlac, which is known for its vast sugar and rice plantations, was also the birthplace of the first paper money and coins of the independent regime.
