Cari amici, oggi voglio parlarvi dell’isola di Siquijor. Un posto paradisiaco ma avvolto da un alone di mistero. Dicono che l’isola sia piena di stregoni che praticano la magia. C’è addirittura una“scuola di specializzazione in stregoneria”, da far invidia, persino, al maghetto Harry Potter. Buona avventura!
Siquijor is a peaceful island province of the Philippines right in the heart of the Central Visayas Region. Its capital is the municipality also named Siquijor and for now, is the third smallest province in the country.
Siquijor, the mystic island or “Isla del Fuego” (Island of Fire) as the Spaniards called it. For most Filipinos, Siquijor is a mysterious other-world of witchcraft and the unknown. True, this tiny island province is famous for its mountain-dwelling mangkukulam (healers) who brew traditional ointments for modern ailments.
But these days Siquijor’s most popular healing practice involves a cocktail and a deck chair at any number of its laid-back and wonderfully affordable beach resorts. If you want relax and unwind, crystal clear aquamarine water and stunning beaches, diving or snorkeling, swim into lovely waterfalls, unforgettable sunsets, discover each nook by yourself, taste the best Filipino food or just talk and share experiences with the friendly local people. Siquijor the perfect tropical island.
It’s more fun in the Philippines.
