The Heritage Sites Of Glan, Sarangani Province

Glan, Sarangani Province is not just best for it's white sand beaches. It is also home of Colonial Houses built way back in 19th century.

The Byaheng Mindanao Team visited the Province of Glan, Sarangani  last September 12-13, 2014. I have been to this province several times but last weekend I discovered new tourist destinations.

Byaheng Mindaw Team with Tourism Officer Ms. Lodar Dagoy-Escobillo
We were assisted by Ms. Lodar Dagoy-Escobillo Tourism Officer of Glan, Sarangani for the 2 days tour. Our first stop was at Glan Elementary School where Century Old Acacia Trees can be found.

 Next stop was at Sta.Catalina De Alexandria Parish which was built in 1949.

We also  visited Alegado Colonial House which was also built in 1949. Some Articrafts found inside  was even older than their house.

Check out this  resort that will open to the public very soon.   Hacienda Don Juan located in Barangay Lagu, Glan, Sarangani Province.  I was fascinated by the design of the resort because of it's  Antique wooden furnitures.
