Cagayan de Oro City

Cagayan de Oro City is located in Northern Mindanao, Philippines. I grew up in this city which is popularly known as The City of Golden Friendship. I spent my childhood days in the heart of the city called "Kalambaguhan" then, later lived near the river banks where the beauty of clean river was my playground. Cagayan de Oro is also famous as " The Gateway to Northern Mindanao" , the " Rafting Capital of the Philippines", "ICT Goldmine of the Philippines" and " A City in Bloom, Blossom and in Bloom". I am a proud Cagayanon! Cagayan de Oro is known to be a first class city and it is truly highly urbanized since 1983. At present, the city has two Congressional Districts (East & West) with 80 Barangays. I belong to the West District since I live uptown, overlooking the city. The climate in Cagayan de Oro City is tropical with average temperature of only 82F. The highest recorded temperature was 102F but, that was in 1988.
85% of the population in this city is Roman Catholic which is the dominant religion. August 28 marked as the Fiesta of Cagayan de Oro City in honor of the Patron Saint Augustine.
