It’s my first time in Bicol and I was clearly amazed by the beauty that this region offers. I was lucky to be selected to experience and feature the Bantayog Festival 2019 in Camarines Norte along with fellow bloggers.
The festival is a commemoration of the first monument of the country’s hero Jose P. Rizal. Many historians ask why the oldest monument dedicated in honor of Rizal is located in Bicol when he never set foot there in the first place. The reason for this is that the people of Camarines Norte felt the need to build a monument for our hero as a sign of respect and honor for revolutionaries who fought during Spanish colonization.
