At the heart of the Western Visayas region of the Philippines, there lies a province known as the “Land Where the Mountains Meet the Sea” – Antique.
It is bounded on the north and northeast by Aklan, on the east by Capiz, and on the southwest by Iloilo. On the west is the Cuyo East Pass of the Sulu Sea, part of the vast China Sea. Eighteen municipalities make up the province: fourteen along the coast, three inland, and one on six islets.
