Places to Visit In and Around Sorsogon Province

Juban’s Old Houses Lining the highway, as one enters the town center of Juban, are several old houses, known as "bahay na bato", still relatively well-preserved and intact although their ground floors have long ago been turned into commercial establishments. These old houses still have their original tall, sliding windows made of capiz, including carved wooden balustrades just below the window sills. Inside, one can still find original, well-preserved antique furnitures, including other antiquities. Private historical or heritage collections can also be found inside these houses.

Limestone Cave of Bacon is where they found many ancient artifacts in the mid-50’s. It is a privately owned area and probably one needs permission to enter. It is about 100 meters from the junction along the Sawang Bacon road.

Manta Rays in Ticao Pass were recently discovered in the shallow reef of Ticao Pass- a body of water within the area of Burias Island, Sorsogon, and Ticao Island which has the thickest concentration of plankton in the Philippines. These magnificent and elegant sea giants usually can be experienced from March to July.
