Hanging Coffins

The town of Sagada up in the mountains of the central northern provinces is a tourist attraction for, yes you guessed it, coffins that hang on the side of cliff walls. This isn't the only thing the tourists flock to see. They also come for the stone coffins inside the numerous limestone caves in the area. At least the ones in the caves date back a few hundred years but the ones on the cliff walls are fairly recent and are mainly for those local's that do not practise Christianity. The third photo is a cave that was especially for women who lost their lives during childbirth.
