Camiguin is an island province in the Philippines located 10 kilometres off the northern coast of Mindanao. It is geographically part of Region X, the Northern Mindanao Region of the country. It is the second-smallest province in the country in both population and land area after Batanes.

The province is famous for its sweet lanzones, to which its annual Lanzones Festival is dedicated and celebrated every third weekend of October. It is home to lush interior forest reserves, collectively known as the Mount Hibok-Hibok Protected Landscape, which has been declared as an ASEAN Heritage Park by all Southeast Asian nations. The province also boasts three National Cultural Treasures, namely, the Old Bonbon Church ruins in Catarman more known as the Sunken Cemetery of Catarman, and the Spanish-era watchtower in Guinsiliban. The three sites were declared for their outstanding historical, cultural, artistic and/or scientific value.

Moreover, the island province has numerous remarkable cultural treasures, such as the Old Mambajao Fountain (situated in the town’s rotonda), the Old Mambajao Municipal Building, the façade of the Santo Rosario Church in Sagay, and 14 heritage and ancestral houses. These sites were declared for having exceptional cultural, artistic and historical significance to the Philippines. All cultural treasures were declared by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts.

The pictures and videos were taken during a vacation trip on January 2017.
