Baler Church and Museum
Despite of its simplicity, the church is a remembrance of the Siege of Baler. From July 1, 1898 to June 2, 1899, the revolutionaries laid siege to the church manned by Spanish troops in the town. Its a battle of the Philippine revolution and concurrently the Spanish-American and the Philippine-American War.
In Baler Museum, You’ll get to discover more of Aurora’s heritage, culture and arts. Apparently it was closed when we had our visit.
Aurora Aragon Quezon House
To discover what’s behind the life of the wife of Manuel L. Quezon President of the Commonwealth of the Philippines. The province was named after her wife, Aurora Quezon. We were unable to spend much here but you'll get to read facts about their family here.
Located at the small village of San Luis, Aurora is a hidden wonder. It was a rough unpaved rocky road plus a 30mins walk to discover the Mother Falls also known as Ditumabo Falls. An easy and constructed trail for the visitors and we also notice a well maintained surroundings. The falls exceed my expectation as it was magnificent on its own. We immediately dipped in. The water is so refreshing. Also no entrance fee but we can give donations for the caretakers.
Lukso-lukso Islets and Diguisit Beach
Located at the coast of Barangay Zabali, Baler Aurora, it’s another beautiful beach to see. It's a very scenic place. Sun was on its dusk when we visit the place and that makes it more appealing. You may also notice a small man-made pool at the side and the kids are enjoying it as much as we appreciate the view.
And the Ma. Aurora Old Balete Tree
So that's just some of the province of Aurora. Its the surfer's paradise other side of the town. So when you're done surfing, or maybe before you begin to surf, you may want to explore the town first to warm up. But then let's not skip the Surfing part of Baler in here. :)
