VALENCIA

Valencia
Valencia has mature trees

Valencia is an increasingly popular municipality just an hour from Dumaguete along the slope of the volcanic Mount Talinis. It has seen progress the last few years - concretizing of the main road to Dumaguete, more upscale housing targeted to expats, and its famous Sunday Market. With 500 feet of elevation, the climate is cool. The soil is fertile which accounts for many of its in-season fruits.
