Salcedo Village: Makati’s Charming Village
Salcedo Village is one of the villages constituting Barangay Bel-Air, established in the late 1950s as a commercial and residential community. The village is said to have been named after Juan and Felipe de Salcedo, Spaniards who were part of the Lopez de Legazpi expedition to the Philippines in the 16th century
Surrounded by the skyscrapers of Makati Central Business District, Salcedo stands out with its lush community where work and lifestyle coexist harmoniously. Often packed with working professionals on weekdays, Salcedo Village reveals its true beauty on weekends when a lively community gathers at the Salcedo Saturday Market where fresh produce and a feast of various cuisines are highly anticipated, and along the tree-lined sidewalks where kids, bikers, and dog-walking residents find leisure.
Within Salcedo Village also lies a variety of dining options, along with world-class international schools, fitness centers, shops, and everything a sophisticated community would ever need. Being a part of Salcedo Village amidst a fast-paced business district is like getting the best of both worlds: laid-back lifestyle and urban convenience.
On-street parking is charged from 7 am to 5 pm every day except Sundays and holidays. Parking is limited to 3 hours, charged P50 for the first 2 hours, and an additional P60 for the third hour.
