caysasay church taal batangas

a walk down one of the streets of Taal town leads to a church not so grand as the Taal church. yet miraculous stories about the image of the Lady of Caysasay makes it one of the most mysterious.some would call it Caysasay as others Casaysay. going back to my post on Taal church, i saw a bell with an encryption Casaysay which somehow made me wonder what really is its real name.if one looks at this church, it's small and a bit ordinary. plain flooring but with nice stone walls and beautiful altar ceiling paintings. a top view shot won't disappoint a photographer.expect kids to approach you for candles while some are just there to observe you and by chance even entertain you with their smile and questions. they will even convince you to visit the nearby church ruin and its miraculous spring.
a good stop when you visit the heritage town of Taal. it's just about 15minute walk from the plaza and about 10minutes from the Villavicencio house.

ang galing ng mga kuha dong. i say each church has its own charms.

do you believe that when you go visit a church for the first time the chances of getting your wish granted is very high?

Mexican influence could really be seen in our churches. But what impresses me are the paintings at the ceiling.

Hilda said...

The church is definitely more interesting inside than outside. The paintings are amazing! I like the old ruins too.

I also knew it as Caysasay. But I remember college classmates who were from Batangas, calling it Casaysay.
