A Tour of South Batan, Part 2: Uyugan

Brgy. Imnajbu (pronounced im-nah-boo) in the municipality of Uyugan has a very cool name and one of the smallest populations in the Philippines — just over 100 people! Its rugged landscape is captivating, especially more so the day we went there, what with a signal no. 4 typhoon coming.

Imnajbu has a lot of claims to fame for such a small barangay. It is where the first Catholic mass and baptism in Batanes was held. A pretty chapel, dedicated to San Lorenzo Ruiz, now marks the spot where the first mass was held.

Imnajbu also has its wide shores to be proud of.

There are interesting rock formations. This one is cut through by the winding road. I suppose that once upon a time, the half section of the rock eventually fell toward the sea.

Unfortunately, we are unable do any "I-Dawn Zulueta mo ako" pose in Uyugan or anywhere else
We, on the other hand, are (fortunately) unable do any “I-Dawn Zulueta mo ako” pose in Uyugan or anywhere else.
