My World#112 Philippine Churches Part 8: Basilic Minore del Sto. Nino

It's time for the centuries-old tradition Visita Iglesia this coming Holy Thursday. I have yet to decide what churches to choose. It would be easier to choose if I am somewhere the northern or middle part of the country with their centuries-old churches.

I've started to appreciate the Visita Iglesia (church visits) years ago when I did it in Ilocos. The centuries-old churches of the Philippines are really beautiful. There are so many of them that doing the Visita Iglesia need not to be boring.

One of the churches I find interesting is the Basilica Minore del Sto. Nino in Cebu City. I showed the photos of its facade earlier here. Here're the photos inside..

These are all beautiful photos! I love them. You gave me an idea on what to do this coming Thursday/Friday.

As for your question, I use a Nikon D5000 with the kit lens (18-55) or a Nikon Coolpix P80.

I hope to see more of your photos. Following your blog, BTW.

That looks like a wonderful church. I like the photos, it's not easy to get good shots like these inside a church.
