The Panligawan Cave with its cathedral like entrance is enchanting. It is 143 meters long and 22 meters deep .You can walk down the wide and sloping entrance or you can rappel from a big hole on the roof. The same hole allows a play of light and shadow with the sunlight and the trees and shrubs that hover over the big hole. From below looking up at the hole is like witnessing the rays of grace from the heavens. It is the image of a divine apparition I carry with me from the catechism stories I heard in grade school. Come and visit the caves of Mabinay, Cebu. You can visit all three caves with a guide-member of the eco-tourism society in one day . Since Mabinay is about three hours away from Dumaguete City you can start your trip early in the morning and be back in Dumaguete before sundown. The Dumaguete moon rise will cap your visit.
