Assemble at the designated meeting place and wait for the driver to pick you up early in the morning. Once your private transportation arrives, you will immediately start your Visita Iglesia tour. This age-old custom revolves around visiting seven churches as a symbolism for the Seven Last Words of Christ. Your first church stop will be at the St. Raymond Penafort Parish in Mangatarem. With its early Renaissance architectural style, this church will surely bring you back to its glory days in the late 1870s.
From there, you will make your way to the town of Aguilar, where the St. Joseph the Patriarch is located. Marvel at its stunning façade and offer a little prayer while inside before you head to the St. Andrews the Apostle Church in Bugallon. The church’s beautiful Baroque façade will welcome you upon your arrival here. Continue your trip to the Our Lady of Lourdes Church in Salasa, where you can hear mass and walk around its grounds.
Go to Sual next and let peace reign within you while saying your prayers inside the St. Peter the Martyr Church. This church dates back to the 1800s and features a stunning Spanish Colonial Revival architectural style. You will also be visiting another centuries-old church at Alaminos City, the St. Joseph Cathedral whose construction started during the late 1830s. You will end your Visita Iglesia at the St. James the Great Church in Bolinao before heading home.
