This town, in the bustling province of Rizal, is located east of Metro Manila. In a 2 to 3 hour worth of drive to the town of Angono, one will be able to trace where two nationally renowned brilliant talents came from.
In here, art and culture is a priority as the streets in Dona Aurora displays works from visual artist Carlos "Botong" Francisco and composer Lucio San Pedro.
Museums here are owned by clans of artists (The Mirandas and Blancos). Art lessons offered all over the town comes as a no surprise as children here, as locals say, learn how to draw first before they are learnt to walk.
