Photo narrative of our visit to Sebaste, Antique Province, Philippines; information on natural and heritage sites, beaches, hiking, local festivals, accommodations and dining.
Sebaste, Antique (207KM) is a unprepossessing jewel of a community. While Sebaste is the location of Igpasungaw Falls and certainly other attractions, for me the charm was more pervasive. While the Municipal Building is just off the National Highway, the church and plaza are well off the highway forming a clean, unspoiled and peaceful center to the town. It’s only steps from the church to the sea. The entire tableau was charming. When I was there the church plaza was filled with school children. The streets and plaza were clean and well kept.
Somewhere in Sebaste is Igpasungaw Falls, reported to be a thirty minute hike from the highway. We did not see the trailhead and have not been able to find any on-line directions. We’ll do further investigation on our next trip. If anyone can give directions, please leave a comment below.
