The stalactites and stalagmites of Church Cave give the illusion of a church. Python Cave got its name from the resident pythons on the walls. Cemetery Cave houses human bones. Lastly, Secret Cave has a ‘secret’ exit hole.

Boac Cathedral

This is ‘the oldest church in Marinduque’. It was built in the 18th century and has a Filipino-Hispanic Gothic Design. The well-preserved facade is prominent due to its terracotta material. Adobe stones make up the bell tower. It’s also a church full of history as the blessing of the Philippine Revolutionary Flag happened there on 1899.
