My World#20 Sto. Rosario Church, Camiguin, Philippines

This is Sto. Rosario Church or Our Lady of Holy Rosary Church of Sagay, Camiguin Island, Philippines. It was built on 1882 and is one of the very old churches in the island of Camiguin. When we got there early this month to visit, the church was undergoing some repairs.

As is with the old churches, its walls are quite thick but what I find unique from this church is its driftwood chandeliers. The driftwoods were also made as part of the church's altar and wall decorations.

My World#18 Sunken Cemetery, Bonbon, Camiguin

The big cross is the marker for the sunken cemetery of the old capital of Camiguin Island. It stands on the solidified lava to mark this old gravesite.

The old capital of Cotta Bato in Catarman, Camiguin and its cemetery sunk during Old Vulcan’s eruption in 1871. During low tide and on a clear day, remnants of the structures and the gravestones can be seen.


We took the boat to cross to the large cross and midway, we asked our boatman to stop so we can see the graves. The graves are discernible through the waters and two of our companions went down to see them closely. As for the rest of us, we continued getting to the large cross platform and took pictures.

According to our companions who dive underwater, the graves are now mostly covered with corals and the fishes that can be seen there are quite colorful and beautiful. The location at the back of the cross is already part of the marine sanctuary. Boat fare round-trip to the cross is only P15.00 per person.

The sunset from this part of the island is quite beautiful. We planned on getting back during sunset that but was too tired. Will have to do it next time including the dive underwater.

Lastly, the cross can be seen from the Via Cruces at the slopes of Old Vulcan.

My World#17 Via Cruces, Old Vulcan, Camiguin

Via Cruces or Way of the Cross is found at the slopes of the Old Vulcan, Bonbon, Camiguin. A popular destination during Lenten season, it is where fifteen stations of life-size figures depicting the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is located.






At the fourteenth station, a sepulchre was carved out of the volcanic rocks depicting the burial of Jesus Christ.

The climb takes about one hour going up but it is all worth it as the view at the top is spectacular.

For those who plan to climb this walkway, bring water as it could get very hot out there more especially during summer days.
