Peñafrancia Basilica Minore - Camarines Sur

Located on the outskirts of Naga City in the province of Camarines Sur, Peñafrancia Basilica Minore is one of the religious establishments in the city. It is also where the image of the Our Lady of Peñafrancia is enshrined.

Peñafrancia Basilica Minore was constructed on April 18,1976 but was finished only on September 1981 due to financial problems. On May 22, 1982, Cardinal Sin officiated its solemn inauguration and dedication. 

Sadly, the physical structure of the basilica minore had deteriorated barely ten years after its completion due to construction defects. Repairs and improvements started in 1991. Renovations were finished several years later in 1995.

We visited Peñafrancia Basilica Minore during our Bicol road trip. I mistakenly wanted to see the Our Lady of Peñafrancia Shrine to visit the miraculous image of Our Lady of Peñafrancia. I inputed the location to the GPS and we found ourselves on the basilica minore grounds.
Cameo role...
It was not a waste of time though because I came to admire the interior of the basilica minore especially the beautiful stained windows. Not to mention I also get to see (and touch) the image of Our Lady of Peñafrancia which was actually housed in Peñafrancia Basilica Minore. (During my post research, I found out that the image was already moved to the basilica minore from its shrine a few blocks away.

Getting to Penafrancia Basilica Minore:
