General Tourism Information

Cagayan is the only true valley in the Philippines formed by the majestic Sierra Madre and Cordillera mountain ranges. It is traversed by the mighty 330-km long Cagayan River and its various tributaries.

Cagayan is a very ancient civilization. It has its distinct, rich and diverse culture. Commerce and trade was practiced by its inhabitants and has flourished with the Japanese, Chinese and other neighbor Asian countries even before the Spanish colonizers reached its shores. Archeological findings dating back to the Paleolithic Age indicate that the ancestors of modern humans had settled in Cagayan as early as 500,000 years ago. Archeologists also found evidences that agriculture has developed much earlier in Cagayan than in any other place in Asia. Its ancientness is evidenced by the presence of centuries-old churches and other religious relics, archeological sites of nomadic tribes, and richness of its local language and culture.

Cagayan with its ancientness is still replete with adventure and excitement. It can flaunt its pristine natural beauty and endowment. It has breathtaking sceneries, beaches, cavernous caves, thunderous falls, rapids, rivers, limestone mountains, thick and virgin forests, verdant valleys and many more.

Also, it is a land of many opportunities having one of the largest fertile alluvial plains, grazing lands and fishing grounds (both marine and inland waters) in the Philippines and a continuous and sustainable supply of production materials. Multi-lingual, warm, gentle and amiable people await you in this remaining patch of tropical paradise in Northern Philippines. (Provincial Government of Cagayan)

  • THE BASILICA MINORE OF OUR LADY OF PIAT, the Lady of the Visitation was originally called the Lady of the Holy Rosary, perhaps because it was supposedly brought from Macao to the Philippines in 1604 by the devotees of the Rosary, the Dominican Friars. This almost four-centuries old image of Mary was first enshrined in Nueva Segovia of Lallo. It was brought to Piat supposedly to convert the Itawes People to Christianity and was entrusted in the care of Doña Ines Maguilabbun. On June 20, 1954, her Church was declared a National Shrine for Catholic Philippines by His Excellency Most Rev. Egidio Vagnozzi, then Apostolic Nuncio to the Philippines. The image is famous in the country and abroad as the Black Mary, thus making Piat the Pilgrimage center of the Northeast. Pilgrims are drawn to Her Shrine every year.
