14. Salinas Salt Spring

Salinas Salt Spring used to be a magnificent site in Brgy. Manamtam in the municipality of Bambang. It was once a glistening white hill, a stark contrast to its forested surroundings at the slope of the mountain. Underground waterways produce the salt of the hill for millions of years which created the hill’s pristine white appearance. It was a popular tourist attraction since the Spanish colonial period.

The town also used the saltwater pools for fish farming and mine the salt for profit. However, the 1990 earthquake stopped the spring and rerouted the waters away from the hill. Monsoons washed the beautiful glistening white salt off the hill and left a dark rocky mound we see today.

Fortunately, new salt spring is discovered at a nearby hill in the barangay. The still-emerging salt spring is being protected for future generations and as a promising tourist attraction.

15. Dampol Bridge

One of the remaining historic sites in Nueva Vizcaya, the Dampol Bridge was built in 1818 by hand by the Isinays and other indigenous groups in the area. The historic unreinforced bridge has a single arch and spans the Abanatan Creek connecting Brgy. Dupaj and Brgy. Dumang. The red bricks of the bridge were made in an old adobe workshop near the St. Vicente Ferrer Church.

The bridge was close to demolition in 2014 as part of a road widening project if not for the protests of the Isanay and the local community. Today, it is a protected historical site.

Bayombong: The Mountainous Capital of Nueva Vizcaya

Bayombong: The Mountainous Capital of Nueva Vizcaya

Nueva Vizcaya is often overlooked in favor of its more popular neighbors. To its west stands Benguet while Ifugao is to its north. Isabela, a nature lover’s haven, sits on the southeast. Aside from being called the Citrus Capital of the Philippines, what else does dear old Nueva Vizcaya have to offer? Well, it turns out, so much more.

As the capital of Nueva Vizcaya, Bayombong is the focal point of interest when traveling to the province. A place of steep hills and mountains, the provincial capital would surely delight those who love nature breaks. But nature aside, Bayombong is also host to several historical sites.

Attractions in Bayombong

Spanish Occupation in the Philippines lasted more than 300 years. If they were able to build a fortress in a remote island of Palawan, how much more if they only need to travel by land? Other than the Spanish, Americans have made their mark in the province as well. Given these facts, there are influences of each on the culture of the area.

That said, here’s what you’ll find in Bayombong:

  • Bangan Hill National park . A historical and cultural treasure, this was the site of the first mass in Nueva Vizcaya in 1739. The annual “Stations of the Cross” during Holy Week is also staged here. For the rest of the year, the hill serves as a hiking destination with great views of the valley.

Being the Citrus Capital of the Philippines, don’t forget to sample the many citrus fruits sold in many stalls in Bayombong.

Getting to Bayombong

The best way to get to Bayombong is from Manila. There are a number of buses that head for the Cagayan Valley region, where Nueva Vizcaya is located. These buses pass through Nueva Vizcaya via the Maharlika Highway. Ask the driver or conductor to drop you off at Bayombong. The travel time from Manila to Bayombong is about six hours but that highly depends on traffic conditions. It might even be ideal to leave at dawn to avoid the traffic that is plaguing Metro Manila.

Bayombong is one of those places where the pace of life is slow and slowing down yourself allows you to take pleasure from a visit. Observe, take photos and relish in peace before heading back to reality.

Bayombong is home to several institutions of higher learning as well as to a modern hospital. Several resorts are also located in the town.

Places to See in Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya

Although Bayombong still has a long way to catch up with other popular tourist destinations in the country, the town looks set for big things, which is a good reason to visit. Nestled in the province of Nueva Vizcaya , Bayombong is hemmed in by lush massifs and pastoral lands, making it an impeccable place to grow citrus fruits. A visit here wouldn’t be complete without taking home a bag of honey dew, oranges, seedless Satsuma and whatnot.

I recently joined the Cordillera Caravan 2015 organized by the Philippine Tour Operators Association (PHILTOA) to Nueva Vizcaya. We arrived in the town of Bayombong where we were warmly met by cheery elementary students who pleasantly flaunted their band’s performance. Meanwhile, the staff of the local government unit and the residents eagerly showed us what their town has to offer.

nvz-1

Looming over the town square is the 17th century St.Dominic Cathedral (formerly St.Augustine Church). Its crimson brick walls and octagonal bell tower makes it a favorite subject of snap happy tourists. But aside from its gorgeous facade and neck-swiveling architecture, this massive edifice is stuffed with history.

bayombong2.jpg

The first mass in the region is believed to have been celebrated here. Based on the marker, on April 12, 1739, Fray Pedro Freiri celebrated the first mass in St.Augustine Church in Bayombong. Five months later, the Augustinian friars relinquished the mission to the Dominicans and rededicated the church to St. Dominic de Guzman. But it was only in November 1982, when the first bishop took sit, that the church was named St. Dominic Cathedral.

Just a stone’s throw away from the cathedral is the interesting People Museum’s Library . The ground floor contains traditional blankets hand-woven by indigenous people of the Philippines. One of the exhibits here is the ues pintuan , an Ikat blanket crafted by the Isinay tribe of Nueva Vizcaya. The last known of its kind can be found at St.Vincent Ferrer Church in Dupax del Sur , which was woven by Uwa Felipe Mangayat Castillo in 1978. Another impressive textile on display during our visit is aladdang , a blanket from Guinzadan, Mountain Province which is used as a death shroud.

nvz2-1

Another landmark worth checking while in Bayombong is the Bangaan Hill National Park in Brgy.Magsaysay, the setting of the annual Stations of the Cross during the Lenten season. It’s a protected site ideal for hiking which offers a scenic view of the surrounding valley hemmed in by mountain ranges.
