The Province of Antique is eyeing to become the “Native Lechon Capital of the Philippines.”

Governor Rhodora Cadiao said the province would like to be recognized as one of the progressive provinces in Western Visayas while creating tourism-related activities to further attract tourists from nearby Boracay Island in Malay, Aklan.

“We thought of an idea, like promoting Antique as the Native Lechon Capital of the Philippines so that the spillover tourists in Boracay could come to Antique where there is the best tasting native lechon,” added Cadiao.

She also said that some of the roasted native pigs prepared in the province are organic and cultured.

The bid to become the country’s native lechon capital is one of the activities lined up for the Northern Antique River Festival on October 26 to 27.
