It is our devotion as Catholics to do Visita Iglesia every year, during the Holy Week.
Last year, we visited 7 Historical Churches in Manila. This year, we braved the scorching summer heat to reflect, pray, and visit 7 magnificent churches in San Juan and Mandaluyong and one in Quezon City since it’s on the way.
The details are going to be short, but it can serve as your guide if you haven’t completed this year’s Visita Iglesia yet, to help you with your planning, or just looking for a church in these areas.
