Mayor Yap proud of Glan’s part in history

BATULAKI, Glan, Sarangani (October 31, 2021) - Glan Mayor Vivien Yap says “it makes us proud that we are part of the history of our country 500 years ago” during the unveiling ceremony of the quincentennial historical marker on October 26. The historical marker was installed with the 33 other markers within Philippine territory where the Magellan-Elcano expedition had brief stops along their voyage. In Batulaki, the chronicler Antonio Pigaffeta recounted the remaining crew of the expedition sheltered along its shores from the “most furious storm” he described that almost submerged the remaining ships the Trinidad and the Victoria. Yap plans to develop the place as a tourism site. (Martin Fernando E. Bernad Jr./SARANGANI PROVINCIAL INFORMATION OFFICE)
