Tromba Marina – Ermita Hill by Dennis Natividad · 365 Project 

The Tromba Marina sculpture serves as a reminder of the tsunami in 1735 that almost wiped out Baler.

The life-sized sculpture at the foot of Ermita Hill along the main road dramatizes what happened, a reminder what took place when tsunami hits the town.Only several families were able to climb the hill successfully and survived.
