What are the 3 continents in the Philippines?
The Philippine archipelago is located between Asia and Australia. It is formed by a set of more than 6500 islands, mostly uninhabited. The largest are the island of Mindanao to the south and the island of Luzon to the north. The territory of the Philippines is of volcanic origin deriving from the numerous presence of volcanoes, and coral. Although volcanoes are distributed throughout the territory, volcanic activity is reduced. There are about 50 volcanoes of which more than 10 are active, and this periodically causes the formation of earthquakes.
The country is rich in reliefs such as the Cordillera Central, which stretches from the north to the Luzon Canal, and also the Sierra Madre which stretches along the Pacific coast and represents the largest mountain relief in the Philippines.
In addition to the mountains, in the Philippines there are several rivers such as the Cagaan Thanks to their presence, the territory is very fertile and consequently particularly suitable for agriculture.
In the village there are also various plains and alluvial terraces characterized by a dark clay soil. The ashes emitted by active volcanoes make the soil moist and optimal for the cultivation of fruit plants.
