Heritage and Culture

Ancestral homes, age-old landmarks, traditions and rituals celebrate time and life

As rich in heritage and culture as it is in fertile lands, Camiguin is home to several Important Cultural Treasures, including three National Cultural Treasures as declared by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts—the Spanish-era watchtower, the Old Bonbon Church Ruins and the Sunken Cemetery.

The colorful Lanzones Festival also calls Camiguin its home. Already in its 40th year, the festival gives thanks for bountiful harvest of sweet Lanzones, which Camiguin is famous for.
