Get introduced to Naga City’s most iconic and frequently visited sites as you embark on this half-day tour around the city. Having been dubbed as the “Queen City and Heart of Bicol,” Naga is home to some of the region’s popular landmarks. If you fancy sightseeing and have limited time, see the best of Naga by reserving a slot on this trip.
An air-conditioned tour van will pick you up from Naga City and take you to the Peñafrancia Basilica Minore. The image of Our Lady of Peñafrancia, which was sculpted in 1710, is currently housed in this church. It is the patron of Naga and the inspiration for the annual Peñafrancia Festival. After the Basilica, you will be visiting San Francisco Church, the first church built by the Franciscan friars in Southeast Asia in the late 1570s. This church was also the same location where the Spaniards surrendered to the Filipino revolutionaries, marking the end of Spanish rule in the Bicol region.
Located in front of the San Francisco Church is the Quince Martires. This is a monument built in honor of the Fifteen Martyrs of Bicol who were executed by firing squad for supporting the Katipunan uprising during the Spanish era. The country’s national hero, Dr. Jose Rizal, who was executed the same way as the fifteen Martyrs, was also given tribute in Naga through another monument in Plaza Rizal. Today, the plaza serves as a public recreational and relaxation spot for the locals.
Finally, you will visit the CamSur Watersports Complex. This place is known for wakeboarding, water skiing, and wakeskating. Before heading back to your accommodation, you will be stopping by the House of Pili where you can buy some pili nut products to take home, a specialty food of this region.
