Why Catanduanes Belongs in my Top 3 Philippine Provinces to Visit

And why it should be on yours, too.

Simply known as Bato Church, this stone church built in 1830 (from the original site of a 16th century wooden church), which stands facing the mighty Bato river, is a picture of magnificence. Making a pit-stop here en route to your exploration of the rest of Catanduanes, is a must; either to say your prayers or simply delight at its imposing façade made of coral stones.

These are just a few of the many places worthy to visit in Catanduanes. If we list down every one of them, this article will end up too lengthy to read. Why not use this as your guide and feel free to explore the other sites in this happy island. Make sure to let us know in the comment section how your trip to Catanduanes went. I’m sure, like me – you will also put Catanduanes at the top of your favorite provinces in the Philippines.
