Discover the wonders of Iligan City including its popular waterfalls. Known as the country’s ‘City of Majestic Waterfalls’, Iligan City is the home of the Maria Cristina Falls, one of the most popular waterfalls in the country along with 20 other towering falls.
You will begin the tour at Divine Mercy Hills Shrine. Standing above the Macajalar Bay in El Salvador is a 50-ft tall statue of Jesus. The statue has a stairway that also acts as the entrance for the faithful going inside the statue. The statue is divided in various parts: at the base is a healing chapel and at the chest is a ‘chamber of adoration’.
After a moment of reflection, you can now see for yourself one of the country’s famed waterfalls, the Maria Cristina Falls. A 320-ft high waterfall, the Maria Cristina Falls is an iconic waterfall in the country as it’s always featured in textbooks. It’s a natural landmark where the water flows from the Agus River and is a source of electricity. It’s also called ‘twin falls’ due to a large rock dividing the water flow.
After seeing one of Iligan City’s pride, you can now visit another famous landmark, the Macapagal-Macaraeg Ancestral House. Declared as a heritage house in 2002 by the National Historical Institute, the Macapagal-Macaraeg Ancestral House is the first house where two of the Philippines’ former presidents lived (Diosdado Macapagal and his daughter, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo). The house was constructed in 1950 and the government continues maintenance efforts at present time.
