Visit Taal, Batangas: A Photo tour

We visited the Poblacion in Taal town in Batangas. Heralded by some as the Vigan of the South, Taal boasts its majestic St. Martin de Tours Church, the largest in Asia, and other historic houses surrounding the poblacion. We were lucky to have been blessed with relatively good weather when we came.

We did a day tour of the town. We left Manila at around 7:45 am. Met up with the other members of the tour group (brothers and sisters) at Petron in SLEX and by 8:30 we were on our way. Traffic was sometimes bad especially in toll exits like Calamba and Lipa. There were some stretches of construction along the two-way road after the STAR tollway. Overall, it was not that bad.

We arrived before a little over 11am and we proceeded directly to St. Martin de Tours church.

We had lunch at Don Juan Boodle House, a short walk away from the Church.

After lunch, we proceeded to Marcella and Felipe Agoncillo's house.

I missed traveling. Good thing we decided this impromptu daytrip.
