Sunken Cemetery, Camiguin Island

In Barrio Bonbon, Catarman, Camiguin lies the sunken cemetery, lying 20 feet underwater. A huge cross was erected in 1982 to mark the community cemetery which sunk during the 1871 volcanic eruption. Usually every November of each year, townfolk held a mass and bring some flowers and candles as an offering to those who once were buried there.
