It’s a Saturday morning, and I’m in the coastal town of Sariaya in Quezon Province. The unusually cold morning, coupled with the slight drizzle, gives the town a somewhat drab feel, especially when you’re in the central part of town, which has nothing but the usual trappings of a Philippine town – tricycles, stores, convenience stores and a Jollibee branch.

But the town is actually a popular getaway for both locals and visitors from nearby provinces, mainly because of its beaches and its proximity to Mt. Banahaw, a popular mountain among pilgrims and mountain climbers.

The town is also popular for the pre-World War II houses which were declared to be of national historical significance.
