The Tree of Bondage

Again, Cabatuan proves that she is a place thriving with rich history. Aside from the town's Spanish Church(1734-1864), Spanish Town Hall(1734), Spanish Pilgrim Cross(1732) and Spanish-Filipino Cemetery(1886), another heritage site lies in one of the corners of the town's public square, the Tree of Bondage which is believed to be as old as the Town's Brick Church and town Hall. It is belived that when the Town Hall and the Church were being built, those who refuse to work, or those who escaped from forced labor were tied on this crooked calachuchi tree and whipped. Today, this strange tree exists like its gasping for life though it's blessedly living and for centuries, it has been there, lying on its nook like holding a mysterious tale.
