As we have stated last time around, most tourist spots in Negros Oriental are actually outside Dumaguete City save for 3 notable landmarks. And so for today, let’s check out those three..
Dumaguete Belfry Tower. It is the city’s landmark, built in the 1760s and rebuilt in the 1870s to warn townsfolk of marauding pirates. The tower is just situated beside the St. Catherine of Alexandria Church and just across the street fronting Quezon Park.
