Moro Watch Tower

A fort constructed near the shores of North Poblacion, Guinsiliban by the natives in the Pre-Spanish period to serve as a watch tower for incoming groups of pirate Muslims—the Moros—who used to raid, loot, take women and children and leave burned villages in their wake. The Moro Watch Tower is fortified with traps, pointed bamboo spears and throwing catapults. Villagers used to call this tower “silip-panan” or “siliban”, directly translating to peeping and detecting enemies.
