The Legendary Punta Cruz Watchtower

According to Rene Javellana, “Bohol relies on small forts and fortified churches for its defense.” The watchtower in Punta Cruz in the town of Maribojoc stands on a site where it overlooks the south sea of Bohol. Built in 1796, the tower served as a look out for invading Muslims.

The fort was dedicated to Saint Vicent Ferrer. The site was said marks the area where the first missionaries set foot to begin the evangelization of Bohol.
