Guiob Church Ruins

Guiob Church Ruins

The century-old Camel Thorn tree at the Guiob Church Ruins in Camiguin. The Old Church Ruins of Camiguin is one of the oldest and unique structures in the island. Old because it was built sometime in the 16th century. Unique because it is made from coral stones. It was later turned to ruins by the 1871 Vulcan eruption.

Guiob Church Ruins was what was left from the old church of the island’s Spanish era capital called Cotta Bato located in Barangay Bonbon, 16 kilometers from the center of Catarman town. It was constructed in the 16th century but devastated in 1871 earthquake and volcanic eruption which wiped out the illustrious town of Catarman established earlier as a Spanish settlement in 1697.". On May 13, 1871, the capital’s peace was rattled by an intense trembling of the ground brought about by the rumbling of a nearby volcano, Mount Vulcan.

Butterfly Sanctuary in Baguio

Butterfly Sanctuary in Baguio

The Butterfly Sanctuary, inside Camp John Hay is the Butterfly Sanctuary, an eco tourism attraction. The entrance fee is P40 per head and P35 per head for a group of at least 25 people. According to the caretaker, the butterflies usually come out when it’s really bright and sunny and and hide when it is cloudy or it is too cold, so if you really want to see a lot of flying butterflies, it is best that you visit at lunch time or when it's hot and sunny. The caretaker also catched some of the butterflies and had our picture taken with the butterflies, on our face, nose, hair, or wherever we liked it. He even told and showed us the life cycle of the butterflies. It was a really nice and educational time at The Butterfly Sanctuary.
