Pagsanjan

Famous for the marvelous and breathtaking waterfalls bearing the same name, Pagsanjan, Laguna is on the list of places one should explore in Luzon. Not known to many, Pagsanjan Falls is actually located in the neighboring Cavinti municipality. The jump-off point to get to the falls is through Pagsanjan, which is why the name stuck. Legend has it that some locals in earlier times asked the gods for some water — so they gave them a lot.

Also in the heart of Pagsanjan is the Pagsanjan Arch, which is the historic entrance to the municipality. Built to withstand calamities, this arch is one of the main attractions of the town. It stands tall and grand, having semblances of Spanish design etched on its structure. Its historical value contributes to the collective identity of the town, giving it more character.

However, this isn’t the only thing you can see in this quaint little town. Pagsanjan is also host to several festivals where visitors can come and join. The Bangkero Festival, the Grand Santacruzan, and the Fiesta of Our Lady of Guadalupe are some of the festivals that are celebrated by the locals in this small town in Laguna. And also, the town is known for their grand displays and festivities during Flores de Mayo.

Be sure to take lots of pictures when you visit this town!
