Taal Basilica: Largest Catholic Church in Asia

We intended to go to Nuvali, but ended up in Taal, Batangas. Just around an hour away from Tagaytay where we had sumptuous Bulalo for lunch, we dropped by this church in Taal.

Taal Basilica, also known in the Catholic Church as Basilica de San Martin de Tours, is old and grand. Under the diocese of Lipa, it is known as the biggest Catholic Church in Philippines and in Asia. I could just agree with it just by struggling to take a picture and trying to fit in in the frame. From my search in the internet, it stands 88.6 metres (291 ft) long and 48 metres (157 ft) wide.

Address: Calle San Martin, Taal, Batangas, Philippines

We noticed that it’s being renovated at that time [to fix a few sections inside the church], but the melodic sound of the church bell at 6pm rang loud and clear, as if it is altogether young and new.
