Bud Promonitory Eco-Park


"Bud", which means hill in the Butuanon language, is the commemoration site of the first planting of the cross by Ferdinand Magellan and his crew after celebrating the mass on the afternoon of Easter Sunday March 31, 1521. Across and a memorial depicting the event have been erected on the site. On this hill that overlooks the Masao River, people had once observed the Butuan Trading Center, where traders like China and South East Asian Kingdom brought there wares to barter for gold and other produce. The park provides a scenic view of the surrounding country side and has many Teak trees (Hadlayati in Butuanon) growing in it. It is a good place to spend a leisurely time.
