Southern Bend

So the last town that we visited was the Heritage Town of Boljoon. Boljoon is one of the oldest towns in Cebu. It is a 5th class municipality with 11 baranggays. Its main industries are farming and fishing. Boljoon’s coastal plains, cliffs, mountain ranges, and hills are all in very close proximity to the Bohol Strait. According to the town’s website, Boljoon is the only ‘Postcard town in the entire province of Cebu.’ And yes, I agree.

Boljoon is famous for a lot of things. The ‘southern bend’ is one of them. The ‘southern bend’ is a term used to refer to that blind curve which has become one of the focal points of the town. It’s actually a section of the south national road which cuts through the very tip of a huge huge rock near the town border.

The Heritage Town of Boljoon. One of my personal favorites!





Kampanaryo. This ‘bell tower’ is one of the oldest structures in town.

Another view of the kampanaryo.

View of the church from the municipal hall.

Free WiFi! Wow!

Standing proudly behind this age-old Catholic School are the awesome mountains of Boljoon.

Escuela Catolica sits at the very edge of the church compound.

The town church of Boljoon. What a beauty!

Statue of Jesus Christ in front of the Church convent.

Sir Jay taking photos of the statue.

Facade of the town church.

Probably the most easily-recognizable arch in Cebu.

Just beside the church is another arch. It leads to a small stone-walled compound.

Details of the arch.

It was in fact a cemetery.

Just across the street is the seaside park.

Houses along the beach.

The Southern Bend

Town Park facing the Bohol Strait. Lovely!

Wow! The best!

View of the park and the town church.

Kids playing at the park. We gave them some donuts. Hehe.

Ahhh! Lovely!

Perfect for late night chats. 🙂

Awesome! I don’t know what this is, though. Hehe.

Souvenir shot! I love Boljoon!
