Snapshot: Cross Marker of Camiguin’s Sunken Cemetery

Sunken Cemetery


The Old Cemetery of Bonbon in Camiguin sank when Mt. Vulcan Daan erupted in 1870’s. Now known as Sunken Cemetery, a concrete cross marker was erected in early 1980’s to commemorate the site of the old cemetery and in memory of the thousands of lives lost during that cataclysmic eruption.

For P20 per person, one can cross the water from the mainland Camiguin and reach the cross marker. But getting on top of it is a challenge and a risk, a very big risk. The metallic ladder going to the top of the cross that are cemented in the wall inside the cross are already rusty and in poor state, so again climb at your own risk.
