I visited Bataan with a heavy heart, expecting a really boring trip into what I thought was a dreadful Luzon province. I changed my opinion almost instantly when I saw the historical significance of the humble lalawigan. Aside from the famed death march markers one passes by that sends chills down one’s spine, the area also has a good number of remaining artifacts of colonial imperialism. One, the First Abucay Catholic church, is a 411-year old church marking Spain’s quest to control the country through Catholicism. The other is the Shrine of Valor at Mount Samat that pays homage to the soldiers who fought hard to keep the country’s independence. Aside from historical sites, Bataan also hosts a number of waterfalls and hot springs such as Dunsulan Falls, Pasukulan Falls, and Sibul spring. Another good place to visit is the Bataan Nuclear Power Plant, controversial because of its link to the Marcos regime.
