This rock marker was established in 1911 by the US Coast and Geodetic Survey as the Geodetic Center of the country. It features a hole drilled inside an etched triangle in diorite rock outcrop at the top of the highest hill (272.42 MASL) in Brgy. Hinanggayon. The provincial government of Marinduque, DENR, NAMRIA developed the area and was inaugurated in 2011. It is located with an almost 360-degree view of Tayabas Bay, Mompong Pass, and Tablas Strait. It is managed and maintained by the local folks as a Community-Based Eco-Tourism Program.
This cave is located in the oldest limestone formation of the province in Brgy. Bintakay, near the historic battle site of Camarines. It is a rocky projection which was used by Filipino revolutionaries during the Spanish-Filipino war. This cave features wide chambers, tight squeeze passages, insect bats, and beautiful speleothems. It can be accessed by a 25-minute uphill trek from the Barangay Hall. This cave was assessed by the PCAT as Class II and is included in the recently held 14th National Caving Congress.
Boac Cathedral was one of the oldest built heritage of the province. Constructed around 1590, it was designed with earthquake baroque architecture. It is located on top of a hill surrounded by high stone walls and bulwarks. Inside the enclosed compound is the original site of the "Ina ng Biglang-awa" shrine.

Where to stay
Welcome to The Boac Hotel
The history of The Boac Hotel was conceived way back during its inauguration in December 9, 1967. Originally, to cater to the accommodation of the new investors for Mining Executives and of course to the Domestic Travelers, my brother and I envisioned that since the mining firm will start the development of the project, during its construction period, they need a place to stay for their executives and their constructors.
The Boac Hotel, fronting the Archbishop Palace of Diocese of Boac, started with the construction of a wooden two story building for a ten (10) bedroom accommodation and only equip with an electric fan and electric power was supplied by the house generator and run for a few hours at night.
