The tour begins once you are picked up from your accommodation. Your first stop will be the mangrove forest in Prieto Diaz. This award-winning 500-hectare ecological sanctuary is home to a diverse variety of flora and fauna. Continuing your ecological tour, you will next visit the thriving coco fiber industry in Payawin, Gubat. You will discover how locals make the most out of the abundance of coconut in the area by turning them into export quality doormats and other products.
Next up is the centuries-old Barcelona Church. Built-in 1874, it is said that the homesick Franciscan priests named the church after their favorite Spanish city, Barcelona. Fun fact: Barcelona Church was used as the backdrop for Miss Philippine’s evening gown during the Miss Earth 2016 competition.
After taking in the impressive architechture of Barcelona Church, you will now head to picturesque Bulusan Nature Park. Known for its lakeside views, Bulusan Nature Park is home to Sorsogon’s highest peak, the active volcano Mt. Bulusan. Admire the serene emerald waters of Bulusan Lake and see for yourself why it is dubbed as the “Switzerland of the Orient”.

Your next stop will be the Juban Ancestral Houses. Home to Sorsogon’s elite during the Hispanic colonial era, the century-old houses will give you a glimpse of the region’s colonial past. From the Spanish era, we move on to the American colonial period with a visit to the Sorsogon Provincial Capitol Park. Built during that American occupation, the capitol complex boasts Roman Gothic architecture.
Finally, take home some local handicrafts at the Kasanggayahan Village. You will also get to explore the nearby City Hall Complex before capping your day off with a fantastic sunset view at the Rompeolas.
