Attractions of Trinidad Town
Tourism got its hold in the province of Bohol. Packed with wonders and heritage that can surely capture the hearts of those who witness its beauty, the province offers a great opportunity for investments that could truly help promote its booming tourism industry.
Most of the towns of Bohol got its own set of beauty and wonders. One of these towns is the town of Trinidad.
Trinidad is a town located at the northeastern part of the province of Bohol. It can be reached through any of the three routes that converge in it. Three of the major routes leading to the capital city of the province converge in the municipality. These routes are the eastern and northern routes and also the interior route.
The town is 98 kilometers away from Tagbilaran City through the interior route. It is also about 128 and 138 kilometers away from the city through the northern and eastern route. It may take approximately 2 hours of travel time with a van for hire and 3-4 hours with public utility buses.
The town is known of its very own Batungay Cave. The cave is located in the interior part of the town. In the forested area of barangay Sto. Tomas, the cave spans more than 700 meters within the Batungay Twin Peak. This is yet an unexplored wonder in the island of Bohol.
Exhilarating! It’s the best word to describe when you are inside the cave. With its uniquely-shaped stalactites and stalagmites, together with its crystal-clear stream that flows inside it, the cave is truly breathtaking.
Myths about the cave have been passed from generation to generation by the mouths of the residents. But more from it, it didn’t only become a source of magical stories. It has a more functional value in the history of the town. It served as a refuge for the locals from the onslaught of the Japanese on World War II. Luckily, the cave was spared from the bombings during the war. The local government of Trinidad had done its part in order to ensure protection and preservation of the cave.
Outside the Batungay Cave is the Batungay Peak located 150 feet above the ground. It is ideal for mountain climbing.
Another likely tourist attraction of the town is the Kawasan Falls. This falls is located in Barangay San Isidro, a barangay 13 kilometer away from the Poblacion proper. It is also 5 kilometers away from the Batungay Cave.
A natural attraction but not likely a famous one is the Ipil River. This river is considered an important means for traders in order to conveniently transport their products for local and provincial, as well as regional trading.
Most of the Trinidadnons are Roman Catholics known for their devoted and pious religiousness. They have their own church dedicated to Saint Isidore.
