Get introduced to Naga City’s locally-renowned sites aboard a private air-conditioned van. With eight stops and a buffet lunch, this full-day guided tour is the best option for guests wanting to see the best of the Queen City of Bicol.
After getting picked up by your designated guide, you will make your way to the Peñafrancia Basilica Minore located along the outskirts of the town. The image of the Virgin Mary, which is called Our Lady of Peñafrancia, housed in this Roman Catholic church dates back to the early 1700s and is believed to bring good fortune. A little over a kilometer away from the basilica is the Peñafrancia Shrine Church, the former home to the Virgin Mary image before it was moved to the basilica.
You will then relax a little at the Panicuason Hot Spring Resort and Nature Adventure Park, nestled in Mount Isarog National Park. The site features an array of outdoor activities, including zip-lining and wall climbing. If you’re a more laid-back type of traveler, feel free to just enjoy the verdant surroundings before you head off to your buffet lunch at a local restaurant.
After the sumptuous meal, you will be visiting the Naga Metropolitan Cathedral, known as the biggest church in Southern Luzon. The cathedral is also dubbed as the mother of all the churches in the Bicol region, mainly because it serves as the seat of the Archdiocese of Caceres. Marvel at the Roman baroque architecture of this Spanish-era cathedral, which is complete with an emblazoned Spanish Royal Seal right above the doorway.
From the cathedral, you will be taken to Quince Martires, a monument made in honor of the 15 Martyrs of Bicol. Just across the street from the monument is the San Francisco Church, which also played a significant role in Philippine history. It was where the Spaniards took refuge before they surrendered to the Filipino revolutionaries in September 1898, putting an end to their rule in Bicol. A quick walk from the church will take you to the Plaza Rizal, constructed in honor of Dr. Jose Rizal. The park serves as a favorite recreational and relaxation spot for locals.
Another form of recreation in Naga is the Camarines Sur Watersports Complex. This watersports park is among the frequented attractions in the city, where you can enjoy water skiing, wakeboarding, and wakeskating. You will then be taken to the House of Pili to buy some pili nut products before going home.
