LEGEND OF PUNTA CRUZ:

PUNTA CRUZ (1865)- The name Punta Cruz is traceable to the wooden cross, planted by the natives at the edge of a cliff, which up to this time stands serenely despite pressures of man and time. The said cross symbolizes the acceptance of Christianity of our pagan ancestors who made their living through fishing along the coasts of Guimnay. Guimnay is the old name of Punta Cruz. The term “punta” describes the tip of the cliff and “cruz” refers to the wooden cross that stands on it.

When the Augustinian friars came, they erected the watchtower as a lookout against the attack of marauders and pirates. It was also used as a place of worship. The Punta Cruz Watchtower is shaped as a triangular pyramid made out of stone tablets carefully assembled overlooking the scenic Maribojoc Bay.
