If not for an occasional exhibit, this place is more like an abandoned site. Not sure if there's really something to look for here except the two plaques on the entrance gate. Good thing there was a remnant of an exhibit displayed in tarpaulin-printed stands...More

You enter this site ready to learn about some history, which you do, but you leave realizing that it has been taken over by local young couples enjoying the beauty. The guide gave us some good historic information, but I laughed at all the lovebirds...More

This place summarizes the history of Palawan. This is good for people who love history and who loves reading. People of Palawan says this is also a lover's place at night (wink wink).

We arrived too early to check in at our hotel so we did our own city tour. Rustic and beautiful entrance. Overlooks the fishing villages. Sad history though between Americans and Japanese. Walking distance to the cathedral. Entrance is free.
