Old School Danao

 

Okay. So I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who noticed this. You see, I think Danao City has a huge huge chance of making it big in the heritage tourism arena. I mean, every time I pass through this city, I see age-old structures along the national highway which are really gorgeous. They always remind me of the heritage village in Vigan and the azucareras in Negros. Danao, I’ve been told, was a huge huge deal in the past (and I think it still is). And  its old structures pretty much tell us how booming the place already was during the time when people in other parts of the archipelago were still in the basic of things. I really think Danao City should take it to the next level. A lot of people are interested in these things, you know. Hehehe.

Anyways, here are some photos I took during my quick drive to Carmen. Hope you like ’em.

 

A row of abandoned warehouses (I think).

An old publishing house. The sign reads:
‘Bagong SUGA’ Mantalaang Senimana – Mogula Matag Biyernes

I think this is the main sugar mill. You won’t miss this structure when you’re driving through Danao.

I think this was a mess hall/restaurant/cafeteria before. Not sure, though.
