The Watchtowers in Guimbal are 17th century structures that served as look out for Moro pirates who used to raid the town and capture its natives and sell them as slaves to Mindanao. Originally there were five (5) structures located in different sites along the shoreline area in the poblacion. Only three (3) are intact and renovated to its original condition Through the Department of Tourism. Like the church, it was also constructed through forced labor called polo enforced by the Spanish colonial government during that time. These Moro Watchtowers are called Bantayan. These structures are the living testimonies of the vigilance, bravery and heroism of the early Guimbalanons. In honor of this historic memorial, the municipality launched the Bantayan Festival.
