An early Spanish settlement, the province of Bohol is filled with old churches, tree-lined plazas and ancestral houses.  Visit the Bohol Museum in Tagbilaran, the Punta Cruz Watch Tower in Maribojoc (a wooden cross supposedly bestowed with mysterious powers), the Baclayon Church, and the marker in Barrior Bool commemorating Sikatuna and Legaspi's blood compact to complete your trip down memory lane. Bohol's numerous hills, valleys and plateaus are ideal for hiking and cycling.  In Bilar, a three-kilometer man-made forest is sanctuary to the province's endangered species including the tarsier.  The towns of Carmen, Batuan, and Sierra Bullones possess cool weather throughout the year just right for long and winding walks.
