After the Via Crusis, we visited Boac Museum, located beside the Boac Town Plaza and Rizal Park. Housed in an old Spanish building that used to be a library and Municipal Trial Court of Boac, it is home to a collection of artifacts and important collections about the Island of Marinduque.

17. Paadjao Falls

We then drove all the way to Paadjao Falls in Sitio Paadjao, Barangay Bokbok in the town of Mogpog. An ideal place for picnicking or camping, the falls requires a bit of trekking passing through dense vegetation to reach it. The main falls is a 15-foot high cascading waterfalls which ends in a 10-foot deep pool.
