Nagcarlan Goes Underground


It was during Spanish Era and later on during Filipino-American that the Nagcarlan revolutionaries go underground. Since 1845 when the Underground Cemetery was erected by the Fr. Vicente Velloc a Franciscan priest, it was become and works as a secret meeting place for revolutionary’s leaders and ‘katipuneros.’ I was on Nagcarlan, Laguna last wednesday on a mountain bike and decided to explore a bit around ‘poblacion’ before going back home.


Nagcarlan Laguna is home of the famous historical site and the only underground cemetery in the country. A well-maintained historical site with no entrance fee, open from tuesday to sunday 8am-4pm, photograph for souvenirs are allowed in the site.
