    Giant Balete Tree (Largest Balete Tree in Asia)

    This tree in Barangay Quirino, Ma. Aurora is claimed to be the largest Banyan tree in Asia. Locally known as Balete tree, it is estimated to be about 600+ years old. The ground that its roots occupy is about 10 to 15 meters in diameter and it is possible for adult people to squeeze into the center of its root network.

     

    Museo de Baler

    "The museum contains pieces that are significant to the town's history," said Mesina. Inaugurated in 2002, the museum's historical mural, a cold cast that covers the facade, was created by sculptor Toym Imao, son of National Artist for the Visual Arts Abdulmari Imao.

     

    Quezon Park

    This quiet park of trees and lawns was developed in honor and in memory of the late president Manuel L. Quezon. A marker fenced by concrete and set on a circular cement platform serves as a landmark of Baler, the birthplace of Quezon.

     

    Quezon's Bronze Statue

    First-time visitors usually gather around the double life-size bronze statue of the late President Manuel L. Quezon, whose 113rd birth anniversary will be celebrated on Aug. 19. Many residents may not know that the monument was actually built from coins donated by schoolchildren-actually, one-centavo bronze coins minted by the US government and were circulated during the Commonwealth Period before World War II.

     

    Baler Catholic Church 

    Historic church constructed from stone and brick which is found in the town of Baler in the province of Aurora. Originally constructed in 1611, the church is dedicated to San Luis Obispo de Tolosa and is known as the site of the Siege of Baler, which took place from 1898-1899 shortly following the end of the Spanish colonization of the Philippines. The current church was built in 1939 but authentic original details may be seen inside, including the old bell, La Campana de Baler. There are markers that indicate the locations where events connected with the Siege of Baler took place.

     

    Aragon's House 

    Aurora Aragon-Quezon is the wife of late-president Manuel L. Quezon. Aurora province was named after her. She was a popular civic leader and social worker, known to all locals for her unselfish and persistent efforts in social welfare programs which benefited the citizens of Aurora. This HOUSE in Poblacion served as Aurora Aragon's birthplace. Although destroyed during the Siege of Baler, the HOUSE has recently been restored based on archived documents and old photos that brought out what were the original details of the HOUSE.

     

    Ermita Hill 

    Had its own share of history as it became witness to the devastating tidal waves that struck Baler in the 1700s. The families who survived the disaster were said to have climbed up the hill for safety. Today, Ermita Hill (or sometimes referred to as Ermita Park) serves as a tranquil sanctuary for locals and tourists. One can just marvel at the amazing waves in the Pacific Ocean, the relaxing views of Baler Bay and Sabang Beach, the river delta, thriving mangroves, and a lot more.

     

    Dimadimalangat Islet

    This rock formation is actually a small island just a few meters away from the reef shore of Barangay Cemento and serves as a point identifying the southernmost tip of Baler Bay. During low tide, this islet becomes a peninsula, of sorts, where one could walk and wade from the reef shore to this natural rock formation. Around this island are reefs for the more daring divers.

     

    Ditumabo Falls 

    One of the key attractions of the province of Aurora. It towers more than a hundred feet above a wide basin and imposing cliffs on both sides hem the falls itself. The locals have nicknamed it the mother falls. The trek alone to the falls is a treat in itself. One gets to pass through lush vegetation, large boulders, a number of sprays and small waterfalls, and cross several streams and rivulets. There are wooden footways already in place; perhaps to aid the construction crews ferrying supplies to the small dam being constructed near the falls.
