The Province

Across the middle of Bicolandia is Camarines Sur. Only 9 hours either by train or bus and an hour flight by plane, landing at Pili Airport. The province is dominated by rich and fertile ricelands. Historically, it is the seat of the Roman Catholic religion during the Spanish period. Today, it remains the pilgrimage center made prominent by the Peñafrancia Festival held every September in honor of the region's patronees, Our Lady of Peñafrancia.
 
The focus of the celebration is at Naga City, a trobbing commercial center, called the heart of Bicol where most of the the major Catholic churches were erected. The image of Virgin Mary is housed at Basilica Minore, a palatial structure replicating the Gothic architecture. Thousands of devotees, pilgrims and visitors flock to this catheral and along the river edges to witness Our Lady's Fluvial Procession, the highlight of the festival, carries on a well decorated flotilla.
 
Camarines Sur is famous for the world's smallest fish, locally known as tabios (scientific name Mistichttys) abundantly found in the serene waters of the scenic lake Buhi. The other lake, Bato, is noted for its tilapia, (scientific name Tilapia Nituka) production.  Iriga City is known for the famous Tinagba Festival- a harvest offering held every February 11.
