Temples and Old Churches
in the Philippines


A little jewel: St. Pancratius Chapel in Paco Cemetery, Manila
We have visited a number of sacred sites in the Philippines, from Bohol in the south to Vigan in the north--and as time goes by I expect we'll visit quite a few more. Areas visited include:
  • Manila: Capital of the Philippines and site of numerous old churches
  • Baguio and the Cordilleras: the Summer Capital of the Philippines, laido ut in the frist decade of the 20th century by the occupying Americans; and the mountain ranges surrounding
  • Vigan: A World Heritage Site noted for its fusion of native Philippine, Oriental and colonial Spanish architecture
  • Bohol and Cebu: natural scenery and heritage churches, across a narrow strait from the Philippines's "second city." We were fortunate to have seen some of the many historic churches in Bohol before the devastating 7.2-magnitude earthquake of 2013, where many old buildings were left in rubble.
  • Pampanga: This includes Angeles City, where we now live, and some stunning heritage churches.
I'll be filling in the list of places visited as I start posting. Come back!
