Aurora is endowed with natural historical, man-made and cultural attractions considering the existence of beautiful waterfalls, pristine white beaches, historical markers and other attractions which are accessible by land.
Among the tourist spots in Aurora, the historical landmark indicating the birthplace of the late President Manuel L. Quezon is considered one of the most prominent.
The historic Catholic Church of Baler is remembered as the last pocket of resistance of the Spanish Armed forces to surrender to the American Troops. An account of the battle for the control of the church is marked on the metallic tablet on the wall of the church.
Another potential tourist attraction is Ermita in Sitio Cemento. According to historical accounts, Ermita was built through the initiative of Fray Jose de Esperagoza during the height of Muslim invasion of the place in the 18th century which serves as the inhabitants’ refuge, both for security and religious activity. Located at Brgy. Zabali, Baler, Aurora, this place served as a refuge during the “Tromba Marina” (Tidal Waive) in Sept. 27, 1735. The place became the temporary resettlement which was called “Kinagunasan” meaning “devastated”.
During the commonwealth time, the place was developed by putting up an altar atop the hill and was beautifully landscaped with gardens of flowers and trees. With the passage of time, Ermita was abandoned and was destroyed, thus the beautiful and attractive Ermita was turned to thickets and shrubbery. At present, Ermita is undergoing rehabilitation. Structures have been constructed and is now open for the public.
Beaches of coastal barangays from Dingalan to Dilasag are potential for mass tourism activities. Among the shoreline bays which can be developed into mass tourism areas are the Baler Bay, Dinadiawan Bay and Casapsapan Bay including the Canawer Beach in Dilasag. These areas need to have infrastructure facilities, accommodation, excellent environmental quality, and other tourism suppliers.
