Yey I was able to snap a pic of this marker on the way to Caliraya. : Pagsanjan’s rich history can be seen in some of the town’s architecture. The Arco Real for example, is the historic town gate which was built in 1878 and completed in 1880. It is an expression of thanks from the people of the town to Our Lady of Guadalupe, who according to local lore marked the exact spot with her sword to ward off a group of bandits. To this day, the gate stands on Rizal Street, one of the town’s main roads. The Royal coat of arms of Spain with two Castilian lions are found on top of the arch, as it was originally designed.
