Batangas City Sights and Landmarks Guide, Philippines

Before any jet-setting experience, you always ask yourself if the sites in your potential location are worth your time and money. Batangas has both sweet people and significant landmarks worth visiting.

Because it is the native land of several heroes of the country, it's no doubt that you will be taken to an interesting historical exploration around Lipa City, Tanauan City and Batangas City as its capital. There's the ancestral Casa de Segunda Katigbak that was a home to a prominent Katigbak's family in Lipa City. Here's the catch: The casa was named after Filipino national hero Jose P. Rizal's first love Segunda. It's typically made of stones, thus calling it 'Bahay na Bato'. From there you can go to San Sebastian Cathedral and Our Lady of Mt. Carmel churches.

The General Malvar Museum and Library and Marcela Agoncillo Historical Landmarks are also educational stopovers. To see some remains and belongings of the brave Katipunero Apolinario Mabini, you can bounce to the Mabini Shrine. Your next stopover can either be the Taal Heritage Village or Punta de Santiago Lighthouse that were both constructed in early 1890's. Caleruega Church in Nasugbu is also must-see as it is considered to be the most sought-after wedding venue. When in Nasugbu, don't miss to visit Terrazas de Punta Fuego and Pico de Loro in Hamilo

Get hold of a more exciting day after lunch by resort-hopping from Gerthel Beach to Hugon Beach, then Mabuhay Beach to Mahabang Buhangin Beach. It might entice you to catch the beauty of the flowing water at Calijon Falls in Malvar, Tingga Falls in Batangas City, Bulalacao Falls in Lipa and Mainit Hot Springs in San Juan. Anilao and Maya Maya along Batangays Bay are great for windsurfing, diving, snorkeling and boating. If wakeboarding is your cup of tea, you'd better go to Lago de Oro Resort in Calatagan. To feel on top of the world, don't dilly-dally in trekking up to one highly peaked Mt. Maculot in Cuenca.

It wouldn't be called a real Batangas tour without catching a glimpse of Taal Lake and Volcano which is the smallest worldwide. For a more fulfilling feeling, you might want to say a little prayer at the biggest church in the Philippines, Taal Church also known as Basilica of St. Martin de Tours.

You deserve to grasp a worthwhile city-to-city adventure in a province where hospitality is genuine, sites are culturally significant and people are sweet by nature. Your travel agent can give you the best deal for sure.
