What to see in Quezon province

lifestyle, Philippines' Best, Quezon Province, travel Add comments

My father was born in Atimonan, Quezon but they moved to Plaridel, Quezon during World War II. Plaridel (Siain) was then part of Atimonan. We visit the place during vacation when I was younger. But since I have to work to support my family and my little princess, I just go there to visit my grandmother during special occasions or when I have time and extra money.

Quezon played a big part in my being. Of course, my father was a quezonian. I usually spent my childhood vacation there and I met ney there.

Quezon province has to offer many beautiful places. Like other provinces in the Philippines, this province offers scenic spots which, tourists will definitely enjoy.

Quezon is divided into 4 Districts. It is currently head by Governor Raffy Nantes. Its capital city is Lucena City. Oh I have a lot of happy memories in Lucena. :)

I have selected my favorite spots in Quezon but let me tell you, this province has many sites you can go to. :)

Quezon national Forest Park and Zigzag road.

This is the zigzag road that cuts between the towns of Pagbilao and Atimonan, Quezon. It is also called “Bitukang Manok”. During the old times, provincial buses pass through this road. But due to safety concerns, a new diversion road was developed for buses. Only light vehicles are allowed to pass this. Though, there are still some hard headed bus drivers that pass this road specially on night trips. The trip is shorter is you’ll take this route compared to the use of diversion road. I really miss passing that road. It is kinda scary though, but you’ll really enjoy the view. I always pray when I pass that road. :)

Mermaid in Atimonan

This is the statue of a mermaid in Atimonan. During my visit to Siain, I always look out of the bus’ window and wait till we pass this statue. It is located along Maharlika highway, and you will really see her. Well, mermaid and siren stories really interest me. There were a lot of talks and hearsay about this mermaid. As of now, I really don’t know the real story why a statue of a mermaid has been built there. Though ney has his own version of the story of this mermaid thing. He said that not so many years ago, a fisherman caught a mermaid in the shores of Lamon Bay in Atimonan. A rich doctor from Atimonan, too, bought the mermaid and freed her. After that incident, the doctor became richer and really had a great fortune. Ney said that it really happened and he knows the family of the said doctor.

Tumagay Beach Resort

I am still thinking of what interesting spot our little town, Plaridel has to offer. Then I remember this beach. It is Tumagay beach resort. The water is clear and clean. Just a like ordinary resort. But the people are great here. Very accommodating.

Mount Banahaw

Mount Banahaw

Who will forget Mount Banahaw?  It is a mystic mountain. I have never been there though. But the mountain has a lot of secrets ready to unveil for those people who are “ready” to know it. They said that there is a certain falls in there, that the waters will clean your soul. There are also talks about a certain passage, that if your soul is not clean then you’ll not be able to pass it. I have found a site that talks about this moutain. You can read the full story here. The said moutain is in fact a volcano. But instead of lava and magma, it contains boiling water.  There are also hearsays that the trees at the top of the mountain is kneeling. Many devotees and faith healers visit the place especially on Tuedays and Fridays. I love to go there as well.  Hopefully, I will have my own story to tell with regard to my experience in going up the mountain.

Kamay ni Hesus

Kamay ni Hesus

This is Kamay ni Hesus in Lucban. It is a shrine dedicated to Jesus and it is about 325 steps if I am not mistaken. There is church at the foot of the hill and it is a healing center as well.

Villa Escudero

Ancestral Houses in Sariaya

If you walk into Rizal Street in Sariaya, you’ll find old houses or ancestral houses. The one above is called the big house owned by Rodriguez-Gala family.

Minasawa Bird Sanctuary in Burdeos – The sanctuary is home to bird species such as the nutmeg imperial pigeon, black-naped oriole, rufous night heron, swifts.

Lighthouse in Macalelon – This century – old lighthouse was used as a watchtower fitted by a canon to protect the municipality from invaders during 1784 – 1854.

There are many more places that will interest you when you visit Quezon province. :)

    We went to Legaspi City last week. We passed via the Old Zigzag Road in Quezon National Forest Park, took pictures of the Mermaid, ate at Kamayan sa Palaisdaan in Tayabas, bought longanisa in Lucban and visited the Lucban church.

    A long time ago, I had been to Villa (now Hacienda) Escudero.

    I’d like to explore further your beautiful province.
