Sablayan Presing Park (Parola Park)


Presing Park (named after the wife of former Mayor Loreto Urieta) prominently known as “Bundok Bayan” a.k.a. PAROLA PARK, is a historical monument dedicated to the people of Sablayan which stands at an elevation of 32 meters above sea level, ideal viewpoint for enjoying splendid panorama. Also capture a glimpse of the history featuring the 18th century Cannon built by Spaniards as protection from pirates, the 19th century Parola guide for sea farers, and a grotto. Today you could also find a modern lighthouse and a Telecom (Globe) tower. The park offers the best sunset view in town.
