Sandugo Shrine

Located in Bohol's capital city, Tagbilaran, the historic site is the place where one of the most important events in the Philippines' history, the Blood Compact between Sikatuna, a native chieftain and Miguel Lopez de Legaspi, the Spanish explorer and colonizer took place on March 16, 1565.

Baclayon Church

Just six kilometers from the City of Tagbilaran, you will find the oldest Catholic stone church of the country. Built in 1596 under the Spanish regime, the Baclayon Church still retains its original stone structure. Beside the church is a museum that houses centuries-old religious relics and other antiquities. One can find a statue of the Blessed Virgin (said to be given by the Queen Catherine of Aragon),an ivory statue of the crucified.

Loboc Man-made Forest

In the 1960's, a nationwide reforestation program was launched by the government under, then president, Diosdado Macapagal. In Bohol, spearheaded by then governor Lino Chatto, thousands of Mahogany seedlings were planted on a cleared area of 857.4 hectares in Bilar and Loboc towns. For many years now, the lush green forest is being enjoyed by everyone who passes through it. Thousands of Mahogany trees can be seen along the road as you travel to Chocolate Hills. A sidetrip can be refreshing as the ambience is cool and peaceful.

Hinagdanan Cave

Situated 15 kilometers west of Tagbilaran City, this sleepy town has at its heart a man-made spiral ladder that leads to an underground cave of enigmatic beauty.

Inside the cave, one will find stalactites and stalagmites dimly lighted by fluorescent lamps along a strip ushering visitors to a reservoir of crystal sea water.

Streaks of light coming from the upper left corner of the ceiling brighten the obscure part of the cave, luring visitors and residents alike to take a dip in the cool 10-foot-deep waters.The light sifts through two wide holes which were accidentally struck by a farmer while tilling the land after World War II.Little did the farmer know that right below the piece of land is a geographical treasure waiting to be discovered--a subterranean cave with converging stalactites and stalagmites.
