He is famous for writing the literary masterpiece, Florante at Laura. For the history buffs, be sure to visit the Francisco Balagtas Museum and the historical barrio in Panginay where Balagtas was born.

Balagtas also has a good number of resorts to choose from, such as the Fun and Sun Resort, the Villa Christina Resort, and the Villa Virgen Milagrosa Resort. For a taste of their specialty local products, there is the longganisa (native pork sausages) from Renzie’s Meat Products, Marilenya’s Food Products, and Esperanza Meat Products.
