Historical Landmarks

Like a historical archive, the province of Bataan harbors vivid stories of the past. A picturesque peninsula where soldiers and civilians once staged patriotism like no other and stood firm against what seemed to be the impossible as they fought valiantly against the Japanese forces during the Second World War. From the verdant plains to its rolling mountains littered with stories of struggle, hope and gallantry, the Filipino’s uncommon valor and love for freedom resounds where guns and canons once rang.

Today, the Peninsula is the History Hub of Central Luzon. It is our pride to share with you the historical significance of the province.
