Our first short stop was at Carcar, just before one enters the city proper there is a giant shoe on display at the Carcar Shoe Expo. This town, now a city, is known to be the shoe capital of Cebu, your Missus will like that.

Less than an hour further south, we got to the town of Argao, take a right turn at the sign that reads "Riverstone Castle", it's just about 2 km from the highway.

There is another entrance at the rear...

...where you can park your vehicle.

The restaurant is not accessible to wheelchairs

But they serve coffee here if you want

Nice inner courtyard

The bathroom's clean, a small step has to be overcome but it's big enough to manoevre your wheelchair

That's where they put you if don't pay for your coffee

Youre not alone

And behind the birds live snakes, too many steps for me to get there though.

Outside wall

That's it

And some information

Just outside the castle, the road leads to nowhere

But the view is lovely

And the mountain's quite impressive
