Maria Cristina Falls is a waterfall of the Agus River. Both the river and the waterfalls are responsible for producing electricity to power the island of Mindanao. Other than being an important power source, it is a tourist landmark of Iligan City. The falls stand at a majestic height of 320 feet and is surrounded by forests.
The name "Maria Cristina" is derived from a legend that tells the death of two sisters named Maria and Cristina which took place at the falls.
