2. Walang Tamad sa Quezon Statue -This landmark is located in Sariaya, more specifically at the left side of the Pan -Philippine Highway if you're coming from Laguna and vice versa if you're from Albay. This statue serves as an icon and reminder to everyone that laziness is not encouraged in the province.

4. Our Lady of Angels Statue -This landmark is located in the Zigzag Park which is situated in the Atimonan park to the Quezon National Forset Park. Our Lady of the Angels is actually the patron saint of the Atimonanins (folks from Atimonan).


5. Sirena - This landmark is nestled on top of a rock at the coast of Lamon Bay just outside the poblacion of Atimonan. The famous sirena /mermaid is said to be based on a legend about the sirena living on the said spot long ago.


6. Gumaca Fish Statue - This landmark is located on the coastal park of the Pan-Philippine Highway specifically on the left side if you're going to Albay and on the right if you're going to Manila.

    3. The Walang Tamad Statue should be removed and change into a "Masipag ang mga taga Quezon". The statue does not depict our true identity since its the opposite.
