El Nido authorities want to declare the town’s archaeologically-important Ille Cave in Brgy. New Ibajay as a National Cultural Heritage Site.

Municipal Administrator RJ de la Calzada said they met with the National Museum last week to discuss the process of declaring the cave pursuant to Republic Act 10066 or the National Cultural Heritage Act of 2009.

“We’re fast-tracking Ille Cave’s declaration at least by next year,” he told Palawan News on Tuesday, November 22.
