Information about Songsong Ruins
Mother Nature's power will humble you as you walk in Songsong Ruins. In the 1950s, a tidal wave ravaged this small village; the houses were damaged and its residents were left without a choice, except to leave their city. At the time, a part of the house rows in the village already had a big buzz and greenery. The house's sides are lined with roses, filling almost the whole. It is one of Batanes' best-in-class tourist spots.
The descendants of the original settlers, who now preserve the charm of the site, had preserved some of the remains. Some of the inhabitable ruins on the site also come back from other locals.
Although some regions of the Barangay is closed to the general public due to possible incidents, visitors still have access to much of the site.
