Laguna – Gateway to Paradise

People wishing to get a respite from the hustle and bustle of the metropolis usually turn south to find solace. The province of Laguna, majestically sitting just southeast of the metro is just about right for a place where one can find solitude amidst a busy world. It is a place teeming with such sights and sceneries that would enrich the senses and calm even the most disturbed and tired individuals. Its culture, as vast and as rich as it is, would enhance your perspective and your appreciation of our history and our common national identity. In other words, Laguna is a place where everything can be had for anybody. All you have to do is to search and you would find what you are looking for – all you need to do is to uncover the mysteries and the nuances that Laguna so breathtakingly possesses and entices people with.

History buffs would have a grand time exploring the streets all over Laguna as it is a province steeped in history – replete with shrines and houses built in the Spanish architectural style. Many of these places have been declared national heritage sites and are being kept so that generations would be able to appreciate the bravery and the heroism of its former occupants. Of course, the most central place to visit for a little cultural appreciation is the Rizal Shrine in Calamba City – the home of our revered national hero, Dr. Jose Protacio Mercado Rizal y Realonda.

The house still sits magnanimously in Calamba, and although it is just a replica of the original house which was destroyed by the cataclysm of World War II, its treasured history steeps the city with importance associated with the hero we all grew up with. Visitors feel an immediate connection to the past – with the shrine maintaining its appearance for decades – staying true and as close to the original. The mystique, the aura of the place permeates the air and it seems just a touch of the hallowed structure would bring you back to a time when everything was simple as turbulent a time as it may have been.

If you are after an architectural wonder – drop by the only underground cemetery in the country in the town of Nagcarlan. Not only is it quite significant in terms of how it was built, but it also provides some historical significance at is served as a meeting place for covert Katipunero meetings.

Nature lovers would have a grand time as well, visiting the different places richly endowed by Mother Nature to help us ease our burdens. Take some time off to explore the seven lakes, of which the province is known for and in each location, you would find the marvelous cuisines and the attractions. Take a pick from the Sampaloc, Majicap, Palakpakin, Calibato, Pandin, Yambo and Bunot Lakes and have a grand time with the fresh waters, the scenic locale and the people who make the place very special, indeed. Or if you want, go rafting and exploring the waters of Pagsanjan Falls to find the adventure and the solace that you want to recharge you for the next grind. Rare is the person who would not enjoy communing with nature amidst the bounty that she has bestowed in Laguna.

Gastronauts would also have a high time exploring the native delicacies and dishes that Laguna holds dear. While it may appear to be normal for some, some people would give a lot for a taste of Laguna espasol and buko pies. You can also uncover such native dishes featuring the ulango and other types of fish that are found in the fresh waters of Laguna. Indulge in the fresh buko juice and other natural juices that the place offers and you would definitely be refreshed to the very core. If you fancy ducks’ eggs then all you have to do is to hop a ride to Victoria and you’ll be in heaven. Or if you crave for fresh milk, whether it be from a cow, a carabao or a goat, well, the sidewalk stalls in the highways would bring you a cooling respite. Oh, such a foodies’ dream and delight is Laguna, where good food and good times are just waiting to happen.

Go souvenir hunting among the various towns and not only will you get what you set out to buy – from the fresh produce to the local handicrafts to the usual souvenir clothing and stuff but you would also get to enjoy the vibrancy of the people who call Laguna and its towns home. You would surely get a warm, hospitable welcome from them as they regale you with their amicable natures and their stories about their treasured place.

Laguna is a huge province – a province that holds, to this day, a great many secrets that have to be rediscovered. A lot of great things and greatness does this province hold, and we are challenged not to be total strangers to our country. Come, visit Laguna, and be prepared to experience all of this and more!
