Baler, Aurora

Aurora Province was named after the wife of Manuel L. Quezon, the President of the Philippine Commonwealth. This province was part of the old Quezon Province, that is why many still mistakenly saying that Aurora Province is in Quezon Province.

The time you say you're in Baler, you're in Aurora, and not in Quezon.

By walking the town, you'll come to many distinguished landmarks of the old times. You'll come into the replica of the house of the Quezons and the restored Presidential car. You can actually go up the house and take your pictures. The area is notable to other historical facts as well.

Walking along, you'll find the Baler Catholic Church and the Baler Museum and the town Plaza. 
What's notable of Aurora is the town of Baler, where the natural tragedy happened in early 1700s, almost wiped out the entire town, and everything was displaced including the town center, and she has recovered.

The story of the town is as exciting as the pretty beaches in this province. One can't go wrong  with the province of Aurora, she still has many treasures open to be seen by the adventurous soul.
