The church of the Old Catarman town was destroyed and partly submerged by volcanic debris during the eruption and formation of Mt. Vulcan from 1871 to 1875. Also known as Gui-ob Church, only the ruins of the church and bell tower remains of the old town. An unsightly modern white lighthouse was recently[when?] erected close to the bell tower.

16th century and made from coral stones. It is specifically located in Barangay Bonbon, Catarman, Camiguin and is one of the highly respected ancient structure in the Philippines. It was damaged due to the volcanic eruption on May 13, 1871.
On the back area of Guiob Church Ruins one can see the old bell tower, old convent and old tree which are already there during the time the church was not yet damaged by the eruption of Mount Vulcan. There is also a beautiful leisure area with wonderful bermuda grass and trees which provides shades to those who stay there.

The island province of Camiguin, known as the island born of fire, is a popular tourist destination in the south region of the Philippines. Known for its clear blue waters and diverse wildlife, the island draws in visitors from all over the world who are looking for an alternative to the more fast-paced vacations islands in the Philippines.
This is my most spontaneous travel, no plans, and zero itineraries. This travel should be a Siargao travel as a birthday gift for myself but it ended up that all flights are canceled because of a typhoon. I was so frustrated and sad but I don't want to ruin my long weekend travel. One of my colleagues has planned a travel with their family and her flight is same with us so I asked her if we can join her, then she said yes! It was a relief. The travel destinations are Cagayan De Oro - Bukidnon - Camiguin, and my spontaneous travel has started.

Camiguin, the island born of fire. This is one of the places that is on top of my travel bucket list. Why?

Apart from that, who doesnt want to visit an island that has a lot to offer when it comes to natural wonders? Hot spring, waterfalls, beautiful islands, historic places, and more! To kick off my 2018 travel, my blogger friend and travel buddy Stella Maris a.k.a. The Wandering Itinerant explored Camiguin for 4 days and 3 nights. Check out the rest of our adventure and misadv ...
To say Camiguin is a beautiful island would be an understatement. True, most tourists and locals love the beautiful beaches the rich marine life, refreshing waterfalls, hot and cold springs and all of Camiguins tourist spots. However, theres more to Camiguin than meets the eye.
