Written by: Chester Jhun B. Castro, Golden Haven Nueva Vizcaya
Nueva Vizcaya is likewise an exceptional ecotourism objective. From falling cascades, grand mountains, untainted caverns, completely clear waterways, and streams, to memorable chapels and consecrated destinations, Nueva Vizcaya offers an undertaking that should not be taken lightly as it lies in its well-kept nature attractions, cultural celebrations, and warm hospitality.
The province comes as in every Filipino traveler’s interest, also known for rich soil with a plentiful stock of oranges. Indeed, it is the citrus capital of the Philippines. You’ll clearly adore visiting the ranches and picking the new organic products for yourself.
In any case, there is something else entirely to that.
Here is a rundown of the getaway you could have in Nueva Vizcaya:
Discover Old Churches and Cultural Establishments
Saint Dominic Cathedral
Also known as the Bayombong Cathedral, formerly known as Saint Augustine Church, is one of the tourist spots in Nueva Vizcaya. An 18th century Roman Catholic Church where Saint Dominic is the patron saint of the town whose feast day is celebrated every August 8. The church is a Baroque architecture with a beautiful facade and octagonal bell tower made of red bricks.
The church went through earthquakes and fire incidents that happened several years back which damaged and destroyed the church. Reconstruction has been made but the bell tower and facade remained in their original state. What remains thus of the old church is only its facade.
St. Vincent Ferrer Parish Church
St. Vincent Ferrer Parish Church in Dupax del Sur is a grandiose structure made of brick, lime, coral or river rock and wood plastered over with stucco featuring a baptistery and narthex pillars covered with finely carved stucco. The two-story convent, like old Spanish churches, is connected to the church.
The church is known as the best-preserved church complex in Nueva Vizcaya which was built in 1775 and survived many earthquakes. It was declared a National Cultural Treasure by the National Museum of the Philippines. It’s also the largest church in the province since the 18th century.
Dive into the clear cold waters
Located in Barangay Capisaan and Alayan in Kasibu, Nueva Vizcaya. The fifth-longest cave system in the country and ranked as one of the best. It is considered as a geologist’s paradise where 4.2km length river from the Lion Entrance, named as such because the rock looks like an image of a lion. A bit like the Puerto Princesa Underground River which 70% of it is filled with water. There, you can find rare kinds of calcite formations, chambers, and tunnels that have unique stalagmites, stalactites, rock formations, and other speleothems.
Within a pretty much-secluded area of Brgy. Lintungan of Quezon, Nueva Vizcaya – surrounded by a healthy rainforest, it’s no wonder that even if it was the height of summer, the flowing waters were indicative of an environment that is thriving and protected. The waterfalls have 4 level drops with pools suitable for swimming. The 1st pool measures 6 feet, the 2nd pool measures 8 ft, the 3rd pool with 10 ft while the 4th pool measures 7 ft.
Imugan Falls ( Sta.Fe, Nueva Vizcaya )
Is a two-level fall with a shallow catch basin with a 35-foot single-layer cascade along the Imugan river which is located within the village of the same name. Its cold water emanates from a spring atop Mount Imugan dropping to a shallow basin before flowing downstream.
Its trailhead is 1.5 kilometers from the main road of Barangay Imugan and can be reached in about 30 minutes of a leisurely walk along a paved trail dotted with signages and directions. Its grandeur and natural beauty makes it a worthy adventure. Its accessibility also makes it a favorite stop for tourists who wish to experience the Nueva Vizcaya.
