Bulacan... fondly called heroes haven because some of the prominent figures that shaped the history of the Philippines came from here.

In my opinion, Pinagrealan Cave is one of the MUST SEES in Norzagaray, Bulacan.
According to the Bulacan Tourism page:
"This cave is a subterranean network of caverns extending more than a kilometer deep. The Katipunero Revolutionaries during the war against Spain used it as a camp in 1896 and again during the Filipino-American War in 1898 as hideout of General Emilio Aguinaldo (the First President of the Philippines). It was also used as a sanctuary by the Japanese Imperial Army when the Philippines was liberated by American Forces." (end of quote)
If you want to visit the Pinagrealan Cave you can drop by the Norzagaray Municipal Hall and get in touch with the tourism officers there or drop by the DENR Office. The land where the cave entrance is located is privately owned and the owner supplies the safety helmet with headlamp for a fee.
If you do decide to explore the cave thoroughly then be ready to get wet as some parts of the cave have waist deep water. BTW, there're a lot of bats inside that might make some people nervous. :)
