The Naujan Lake, the fifth largest lake in the country, is a large freshwater lake probably of volcanic origin, extending for about 14 km from north to south, and seven km from east to west. There are several hot springs along the eastern shore.
The park is good for outdoor recreation like boating, picnicking, bird-watching, hiking and research.
The Naujan Lake National Park (designated as Wetlands of International Importance to the Ramsar List) manages the lake. For more information about Naujan Lake, click HERE.
BANCURO CHURCH RUINS
The famous Bancuro Church Ruins, popularly known as the Simbahang Bato is located in Brgy. Bancuro.
It is an ancient, roofless ruin of a church and priory built during the 17th century by Augustinian priests with stone walls.
It was then used as the house of worship and at the same time as a fort and a place of refuge against the Moro invaders.
A new church had been rebuilt inside the original church.
