Must See (Places to Go, Tourist Spots, Things to Do
- Immaculate Conception Cathedral – The Cathedral houses the Immaculate Conception Pipe Organ, the second largest in the country. A German priest, Father Herman Schablitzki S.V.D himself, assisted by one carpenter and an electrician, assembled and completed the organ in 6 weeks. The organ was completed on May 31, 1967 and inaugurated on July 16, 1967, the feast day of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. The organ has 1,936 pipes, a white oak console with three keyboards, 30 stops and an electric blower.
- Cotta Fort and Cotta Shrine – A Spanish outpost built in 1755 by Father Jose Ducos. Inside the walls of the fort is a special chapel. Enshrined within is an image of the Virgin of the Immaculate Conception in pink and blue attire. Outside the fort on the wall facing the bay is a carved image of the Virgin Mary. The fort was restored to its original design in 2006.
- Bukagan Hill – On top of the Bukagan Hill is a concrete tower with four large German bells. The bells named after St. Peter, St. Marian, St. Joseph and St. Michael were originally intended for the Immaculate Conception Cathedral but were found to be too heavy and too large for the cathedral’s belfry. The bells were instead installed on the hill and officially inaugurated on July 16, 1948. Bukagan Hill has a great view of the city, Panguil Bay and the provincs of Lanao del Norte and Zamboanga del Sur.
