Zamboanga Hermosa, also known locally as Fiesta Pilar, is one of Zamboanga City’s most important festivals. It honors the city’s patron saint, the Nuestra Señora de la Virgen del Pilar whose image is enshrined in the equally historic and venerated Fort Pilar. The feast day proper on October 12 is a special holiday in Zamboanga City, and the shrine itself holds novena masses throughout the day.

With the maxim of ‘vamos a celebrar’ – come and celebrate! – the Hermosa Festival is a unique experience, combining tradition and modernity in a month-long festivity.
