Apart from the late Neolithic period petroglyphs found in a cave in Angono, the province is also known for its enduring art and cultural history. Young artist and Angono resident Celine Reyes raves about her hometown, “While its neighbors boast hiking trails and scenic views, Angono’s strength lies in its character.
