Informations

  • Ligao is located 80.193 kilometers from the terminus of the Legazpi Division Line in Pamplona (since 1921).
  • When the old station building was demolished for reconstruction, the rubble stone pillars on the platform were retained but unlike those in Lucena, they were lifted rather adding an additional support for the new roof.
