Calapan Sights and Landmarks Guide, Philippines

The town’s Sanduguan Festival is a celebrative tradition to catch sight in Calapan. Other than that, are the green lustrous mountains beyond the beautiful resorts and classy hotel accommodations that Calapan values.

After a quick peek at the Calapan City Hall where the seat of governance in Mindoro’s capital occurs, you might head your way to the Casa Real Ruins where history can be brought back to life as you reminisce. Traveling on foot or riding a van, you can pass by San Vicente Bridge and proceed to the Santo Nino Cathedral to gaze at the Hispanic features of the religious infrastructure where most city dwellers say a little prayer for peace and unity. You might want to get to the Bishop Finneman Center for an enhanced knowledge about the town and Mindoro High School for a short capture of the children crossing in and out of the school gate.
