ATTRACTIONS

Villa Ica

Villa Ica. This exquisitely landscaped area is a place where one can escape the busy and tiring city life and here find serenity as one communes and enjoys the beauty of nature in a pollution-free environment. It is an ideal venue for themed garden wedding.


Pine Trees

Pine Trees. Some (10,000) full-grown Benguet and pine trees line the main thoroughfares of about 1.7 kilometer stretch of road from Barangay Igmayaan to Poblacion proper, which gives a visitor the same cool rush feeling when one is in Philippines’ known summer capital, Baguio City. And it is the same reason that this town is Negros’ summer capital.
