My World#60 Basilica of Immaculate Concepcion, Batangas City

Philippine Churches#5

The holy week is nearing fast and one of the traditions still being practised in the Philippines is to attend at least seven churches especially on Holy Friday. So, I shall be featuring more Philippine churches for this month in relation to this practise.

The  Basilica of Immaculate Conception is located at Batangas City. It is one of the oldest churches in the Philippines and was constructed in 1581.

Throughout the years, the basilica has undergone several renovations. Its convent was added with its own artillery to fight off sea pirates.

The Basilica is so beautiful. I'm glad it's builders built well. It has passed the test of time.

very pretty church. I love old churches, much more beautiful than modern ones. Great post!
