Cavite: Bacoor Church

Located in Bacoor, in the province of Cavite, Bacoor Church is one of the oldest Spanish colonial era churches in the province.

Also known as St. Michael The Archangel Parish, Bacoor Church was established in 1669. Like most Spanish colonial era churches built in the 17th century, this church started out as a humble place of worship constructed using onlu light materials such as nipa leaves, bamboos, and straws. The church was renovated to that of its present architectural structure from 1825 to 1872 using adobe, tegula, and believe it or not duck egg whites to bond the adobe boulders together.

Visita Iglesia Batangas - Quezon

Every Holy Week, my family and I goes out of town on a pilgrimage tour to visit churches as part of our Catholic culture. This is also known as Visita Iglesia. For our 2017 Visita Iglesia, we headed south to the provinces of Batangas and Quezon. Unlike the previous years where we only visit Spanish-era or historical churches, we decided to have a mix of shrines and churches in this year's Visita Iglesia itinerary.

Here's where we went on our2017 Batangas - Quezon Visita Iglesia:

Because of the distance of our house from our target provinces, our three-car convoy left home early to avoid traffic and headed to our first destination which is the St. Pio National Shrine in Sto. Tomas, Batangas. It is a quaint shrine tucked in the inner part of town. We spent almost two hours here doing the Stations of the Cross and exploring its different structures.

From Sto. Tomas, Batangas we drove to Lucena in the province of Quezon. Our convoy got separated because I followed Google Maps (which …
