Blast From The Past
The heritage town of Taal in Batangas is home to the Basilica of Saint Martin of Tours, the largest and arguably one of the grandest Catholic churches in Asia. Step inside and you will be awed by the intricately decorated interiors. You can also pay a minimal fee to go up to the top—seeing some of the convent halls and museum pieces along the way—where there is a 360-degree view of nearby towns, Balayan Bay, and even Mt. Maculot in Cuenca. Turn the page to see what else this beautiful town has to offer.
