Bataan churches......


I have always thought
the if we have something to be
proud of in the Philippines,
one of them would be our churches....

And the churches in Bataan are of
no exemption.

This one's in BALANGA where we stayed and where we got the chance to scroll during the night.

This one's in a community somewhere in PILAR. I saw it at around 11pm well lighted. I was tempted to take pictures but hessitated to stop the driver on our way to Balanga City town proper. Too bad the lights were already off at around 1am. Missed opportunity. So this shot was taken the next morning.

On our way to Subic, I managed to take a few shots while on the bus. Therefore, I don't know their names. keke. Then again, I think they still deserve the limelight....

......a beautiful church obstructed by too many electric wires. Hate those wires, they have become too messy over the years.

And this one is quite a surprise, it looks new, simple yet annoyingly beautiful.........

Then we were off to Subic for an overnight stay in Teresa's grandparents. See you there.......


  1. Nice churches you got there. I also plan to post churches at my place but most of the churches here are of modern design

  2. wow! ang ganda talaga.. we should be proud dahil mayaman tayo sa mga ganitong architectural designs!

  3. parang nagi guilty ako kapag nakakakita ng church pictures he he

  4. Being colonized by the Spaniards for so many years, architectural designs on constructions and buildings specially Catholic churches were introduced. The Philippines embraced the culture and espoused the rythm. Up to now, these structures can be seen throughout the country.
    We should treasure them by promoting them as tourist's spots around the world.

    Great photographs you got here!

  5. Borneo Falcon --I also wish to see older churches in the Philippines. we got a couple here listed as world heritage sites...

    cyndirellaz--we are unique in Asia.

  6. Abou--bakit naman?

    Mike Avenue --tama. that makes us unique in Asia.

  7. gusto ko yung unang simbahan... parang pwede ka magshoot ng horror film... pero maganda pa rin...

  8. i like the one in balanga. i like it's overall features. i wonder how beautiful it can be inside.

    those wires... they're everywhere. even the churches in manila. even though how beautiful our churches can be but with those wires, they ruin its facade. i hope the department of tourism will be able to highlight this problem.

  9. MarcoPaolo --Thanks Marco.

    gillboard --ginawa u namang hunted yung simbahan.kaw talaga

  10. the donG --nice point Dom---matawagan nga natin ang D.O.T. whatyatink?

  11. The last three photos was the Church from my hometown (Hermosa). The church is finally nearing completion after years of re-construction. The old one was destroyed during the December 1999 earthquake.

  12. ako rin nagandahan ng balanga. pinakamaganda sa lahat ng pics.

  13. ya my friends who went to Philippines says the same thing~ "the churches are AMAZING!"

  14. Nina--ay HERRMOSA pala yan. Sa bus ko lang kasi po kuha yan. kaya pala mukhang bago. must have been a long and painful reconstruction.....
