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.

  1. The way to Igpasungao Falls was already cleared due to the effort of the Sebastehanons. Unlike before, it is now more easy and fast to walk to the falls. There were also available tour guides provided by the LGU. If one wants to go there, one can inquire first at the municipal hall to be guided accordingly. We hope you can visit our town.
