Culion Island


Culion is one of the few historic places in the Calamian Islands. During the American period, Culion was chosen as a containment area for people with leprosy and 1902 a initial grant of $50,000 was approved for for establishing a leper colony on Culion. The leprosy hospital is now converted to a geneeral hospital but there are still a few leprosy patients alive and living in Culion.
