Said tunnel was discovered in Barangay 39, Bacolod City, and it has caught the attention of the public, it added.

The resolution said the National Historical Commission of the Philippines might take interest over the matter as such might be relevant to the purpose/s of the commission.

Meanwhile, Villarosa said the excavated area was ordered by the Department of Public Works covered, due to the influx of students and other curious onlookers.
