Welcome to Gerard Piepenbrock's "Butuan City" Pages!
The province Agusan del Norte is located along it's northeastern part of island Mindanao.
Mindanao is the second largest island (after Luzon) in the Philippines, in the southern part of the archipelago, surrounded by the Bohol, Philippine, Celebes, and Sulu seas. Irregularly shaped, it has an area of 36,537 square miles (94,630 square km) and measures 293 miles (471 km) north to south and 324 miles (521 km) east to west. The island is marked by peninsulas and is heavily indented by the Davao and Moro gulfs in the south and by Iligan Bay in the north. The long, semicircular Zamboanga Peninsula (west) extends southwesterly towards the Sulu Archipelago and Borneo, and the Cotabato peninsulas extend south and north, respectively.
