Kalesa

The kalesa is also known as carromata, caritela or karitela is a traditional means of transport in the Philippines. This means of transport was introduced by the Spaniards around the 18th century. At the time, it was mainly used by nobles and senior civil servants. They are rarely used on the street these days, except in the parts of old towns and some rural areas visited by tourists. A kalesa looks like a sloping cart and is pulled by a single horse. It has two round wheels, one on each side, and two rows of seats that can seat four people. The driver is sitting on a block of wood in front of the wagon by the horse. Although the Kalesa has become a rarity, age-old examples are still preserved in parts of the Philippines. The Kalesas can also be found in Intramuros, where they focus on tourists and Binondo in Manila, as well as in Iligan, where decorated kalesas can be taken for a ride along a specific street. Kalsas are common in Cagayan, especially in Tuao and other municipalities in the province. In Tuguegarao the carriages are part of the traffic, together with private cars, motorcycles, tricycles, jeepneys, trucks and bicycles. Disclaimer
