One of the most significant place of Imus is the Nuestra Senora del Pilar Parish Church or famously known as the Imus Cathedral that holds many weddings and baptismal celebrations of the city. The cathedral is also the center of spirituality in Cavite as the Diocese of Imus holds all influence over all the Catholic churches throughout Imus, Cavite.
The Battle of Alapan Marker is also a spot worth visiting where a 90-feet flag pole attached to a three-star painted rocks that holds a lady with a flag statue stands. The marker is the spot to commemorate the very first time the Philippine Flag was waved after winning the battle against the Spaniards. The said event in history is the reason why Imus celebrated the Wagayway Festival every 28th of May and why Imus is recognized as the “Real Flag Capital of the Philippines”.
