Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo Cave

After crossing the river with cold and clear water, then walked few meters while the shirtless people were taking a bath along the river, our goal was to visit the most important cave in this park.

The Aguinaldo Cave is the most notable among other caves of Biak na Bato National Shrine.  It is the cave where Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo, once took refuge while leading the resistance movement against the Spanish and American colonizers.  It is believed that this cave was the La Mesa de Aguinaldo, the table which Aguinaldo signed the historic Peace Treaty

This is a long narrow cave which contains different secret chambers.  According to history, the enemy has to literally crawl through the low portal and would ran smack against the waiting defenses of Aguinaldo's men. 

Today, tourists can enjoy the cool and fresh water flowing from this historical cave.  The stalactites and stalagmites formed different hues, sizes and even images. 

This is few meters away from the Bahay Paniki CaveNo need to worry on the trail, it is very simple and you're like walking the street.  But you need to be careful on those shirtless people, they might caught you staring at them, like what happened to me, that's not cool.
