If there were buildings that reflect a city or place, there were three, the first one would be a city or municipal hall, a church and a capitol and added to all the park you have parks. The city’s provincial capitol which served as a seat of power for the whole then undivided Davao Province was always a magnet for activities. This was the center together with the church and city hall. It was where you promenade, spend a lazy afternoons and whole lot of others.
