Exploring Puerto Princesa isn't complete without a City Tour. It's is basically the most common and easiest way to explore Puerto Princesa. There are 3 Historical Landmarks that we managed to squeeze in our schedule and go see via a DIY City tour facilitated by Palawanderer and my good-blogger friend, Evo.
Glenn McDole authored the Last Man Out who's one of the Palawan Massacre Survivor. Together with Rufus Willie Smith from the 4th US Marines.
History Told: The first ever mass celebrated here by Rev.Fr. Exequiel Moreno, six days after the Spanish expedition (March 10, 1872) arrived in Puerto Princesa is the very same place where the cathedral is erected.
In 1961, took almost a century under then Bishop Most Rev. Gregorio Espiga, the Cathedral we all know is built.
Iwahig Prison is a "prison without bars". Whuuuuuut? Actually, it's not just that, there's also perimeter walls. How cool was that as a prisoner's den?
In 1904, it was established by the Americans.
The inmates were I think more interested in farming than staring at the corners of their cell being idle.
Since then, Iwahig was better known for finely handcrafted bags and souvenir items.
