This Roman Catholic Church and convent were constructed following post-Baroque architecture in the 1880’s. The low entablature exudes a humble yet classical design while its first and second levels radiate an irregular yet beautiful rhythm. History recorded that it was reconstructed twice in the 1880’s and 1890’s, and was destroyed again during the 1945 Liberation of Manila. Despite the passing of time and inevitable disasters through the centuries, this spiritual and cultural landmark stands tall in Sual to this day.
Visiting Cabalitian Island is a nature trip that combines swimming, hiking, and caving, coupled with an educational tour of Sual’s local industries. During the boat ride to the island, visitors are introduced to the town’s 750 fish cages, each producing an average of 45,000 pieces of milk fish per year, as well as a view of the Philippines’ largest coal power plant, Sual Power Station.
Upon arriving on the island, travelers can relax in Emoh-Ruo Beach Resort’s amiable rooms and enjoy water activities such as kayaking. Not to be missed is hiking on its nearby scenic rock formations, where people can go swimming in the cold waters inside natural rock basins. Trekking further up the hills can lead to a number of caves such as the alluring Lumahong Cave.
A quick 30 minute drive from Labrador City Hall brings you to Sitio Kadampat, Labrador, where a short trek rewards you with Tinakayanan Falls, named for its resemblance to "takayan" or stairs. There are various paths that lead to the falls with corresponding levels of difficulty, but the easiest way is upriver. The lower level is framed by rocks that you can dive into the deeper pool from, but be careful of the current created by the underground cave next to it. Scaling the rocks leads to a shallower upper pool, where a shelf beneath the falls gives visitors a nice, private little spot to chill. If you're lucky, you'll catch Mang Bernardo, a local who loves diving and does cliff jumps that you should definitely not try for yourself.
