Ermita Hill | Things to do in Baler-Aurora

Ermita Hill (3)
Aurora Baler 86
Ermita Hill plays an important part in the history of Baler. It is where the only survivors of the catastrophe "Tromba Marina" (tsunami) fled for safety on the night of December 27, 1735, when the entire old town of Baler was engulfed with sea water. Now, the place has become a tourist attraction that provides a magnificent view of Baler Bay, Dima-Dimalangat, and Aniao Islets. The entire Ermita Hill is also suitable for trekking and camping activities.
