The marathon, now on its second year, is held in the same place.

For first timers, and maybe even to second timers who didn’t pay much attention, there are must-see tourist spots in the island that will make your stay an unforgettable one.

Here are 7 places in the island that you should not miss to visit:

1. Dauis Church & Miracle Well

The Dauis Church, the Church of Our Lady of Assumption, is the center for Marian pilgrimages in the island and even in the whole Bohol. At the foot of the main altar lies a miraculous well believed to have healing powers.

2. Hinagdanan Cave

What’s a good way to relax after a tiring marathon? What about caving?

The Hinagdanan Cave is a naturally lighted cavern with a deep lagoon and many large stalactites and stalagmites.

Why is it called Hinagdanan? It obviously comes from the word ‘hagdan’ which means ladder. For more in-depth history of the cave, click here.

3. Bohol Coco Farm
