Old Church Ruins | Camigiun

Old Church Ruins
Sited in Bonbon, Catarman, Camiguin

May 13, 1871

Cotta Bato, the capital of Camiguin Island was a quiet and attractive town verdant in its natural wonders. Its peaceful shores provided strolling grounds for inhabitants as they basked under a gracious moonlight.Suddenly....
Tranquility came to a halt as a sub-terranean rumbling sowed indescribable terror. Hundreds of houses and the churches crumbled into pieces, the ground rolled and broke into deep crevices with horrifying earthquake served only as a prelude in the destructive climax as cataclysm never witnessed before Mt. Volcano gave out its fiercest and most violent outbreak.
Cotta Bato was but a dreadful olle of ruins. The single volcanic eruption buried a beautiful town into obscurity.
Hundreds of lives were lost while the survivors sought refuge in the open country that gave them hope for tomorrow.
