  • Bagac Friendship Tower. — The monument, symbolizing the renewed friendship between Japan and the Philippines after the events of World War II, was erected by Risshō Kōsei Kai, a Japanese Buddhist organization. The tower was inaugurated on April 8, 1975, and is located about 200 m (660 ft) from where the Bataan Death March started. The 27-metre-high (89 ft) tower is composed of three pillars interconnected by several multi-layer rings. It located at the junction of the Gov. Linao National Road and the road to the Bagac town proper.[20]
  • Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar. — a heritage park built by José "Gerry" Acuzar, owner of the New San Jose Builders and history art collector. Inside this heritage park is a collection of Spanish Colonial buildings and stone houses (bahay na bato in Tagalog), planned to resemble a settlement reminiscent of the period. These houses were carefully transplanted from different parts of the Philippines and rehabilitated to their former splendor.
