Naga City Things to Do

  • Fluvial procession

    Fluvial procession is the most awaited event (for me) to end the celebration of the Peñafrancia Festival. The images of the Virgin of Peñafrancia and Divino Rostro are carried in a pagoda to go back in the basilica with a number of devoted men shouting, “Viva La Virgen!”. The Bicolanos have a superstition that if any woman is present in the pagoda,...
