Up to the Basilica run a broad staircase, whereupon it will come straight into the altar time. The altar, the roof and cupolas are beautifully adorned. The Basilica also houses a museum.

  • Beautiful church! For a second inside, it reminded me of the interior of the Manila Cathedral. Great view from the top of the bell tower! However, tickets to get to the top of the bell tower costs 50 pesos per head.
  • One among my favorite churches in the Phils. aside from Paoay Church and the Manila Cathedral. I esp. love the massive structure with that Spanish influence. Old and rustic. Once inside the church, it's like you are being transported to another place and time. Love the details in it's architecture. A great venue to tie the knot!
  • A massive, beautiful catholic church in Taal. I went there early evening so couldn't attend a mass, but I got to see the amazing sunset right from the main entrance of the church. You could experience the unique architectural components and detailed artworks. Recommended for a day tour if you are staying in Manila!
  • The biggest Spanish Era Church in the province. This place is very historic and is a great place to visit during the Holy Week. You should not forget to visit it once you are in the town of Taal.
  • One of the historic church in calabarzon. There's a museum on the right side of the altar. Also, one can go up the bellfry and see the many bells dating centuries old and a scenic view of the whole of Taal.
