History Yamog Festival in Pamplona

The term “yamog” is a Visayan word that means dew. The whole town of Pamplona relies on farming and agriculture since it is far from the sea for fishing. In the olden days, the farms would be dry during the day. However, the natural phenomenon of dew is what made the agricultural economy of Pamplona what it is today.

Aside from vegetables, sugar canes and fruits, Pamplona harvests an abundant amount of coffee beans thanks to the dew. Since coffee beans don’t need much care and water, they grow instantly and abundantly all over Pamplona.
