Visiting the grand Taal Church has been on my bucket list for quite some now. But last month, I had this rare opportunity to visit the heritage town of Taal, Batangas including the Basilica of St. Martin of Tours or more popularly known as the Taal Church.
Just like most of the Spanish period churches in the country, the Taal Church was built using the Baroque architectural design. It was consecrated in 1575, but the church was completed only in 1878. The church is made of adobe.
Ladies wanting to tie the knot would love its very long aisle at 96 meters. It is very very long. I just can imagine the drama of a young girl wearing a bridal gown walking here and saying their “I Do’s” at the altar.
Very lovely church. And very well-preserved too. I people of Taal really know how to appreciate their past by taking good care of their tangible masterpieces for the future generations to learn how rich our heritage is.
Our visit to the Taal Church is quite short. I hope that sooner or later I can get back here and learn more about this massive masterpiece.
