    VIVA TURISMO ILIGAN!

    Iligan is now making moves to position itself as another “tourist paradise.” With it’s rich history, an active cultural and art scene, and it’s numerous waterfalls including the renowned Maria Cristina Falls, Iligan City can very well stand on its own.

    Its top tourist draw, the "Diyandi Festival," is a feast in honor of St. Michael the Archangel. Undoubtedly, the most colorful event in the city, the people of Iligan honor their patron saint every Sept. 29 and the celebration is highlighted by three traditional events. The "Pagpakanaug" is the traditional transfer of the old, black San Miguel figure from the main altar to the side altar; the procession and street celebration attended by devotees garbed in angel costumes; and the "Yawa-Yawa," the San Miguel Comedia first staged in the late 1800’s depicting the triumph of Saint Michael over Lucifer.

    Other points of interest in Iligan are 23 other waterfalls including the Tinago Falls/Tinago Mountain Resort, Mimbalut Falls, the Timoga Cold Springs, Maze Park Country Resort, Mt. Agad-agad, Caves, numerous ancestral houses and soon NPC Nature's Park.
