Going to the city's proper, a towering and magnificent monument at the rotunda in Bajac - Bajac would welcome you. This is known as the "Ulo ng Apo" (Head of the Elder), a very evident tourist attraction to commemorate the legend of how the city derived its name.
Other interesting places in olongapo to explore are the olongapo lighthouse and Gordon Memorial Park where the well known "Father of Olongapo City" late Mayor James L. Gordon, was interred. From its landscape location at the edge of the Kalaklan Bridge (near the public cemetery), a panoramic, beautiful and breathtaking view of Subic Bay can be perfect for picture taking.
