Bacoor Church - Cavite

Located in Bacoor, in the province of Cavite, Bacoor Church is one of the oldest Spanish colonial era churches in the province. Bacoor Church   Bacoor Church History Also known as  St. Michael The Archangel Parish , Bacoor Church was established in 1752. Like most Spanish colonial-era churches built in the 18th century, this church started out as a humble place of worship constructed using only light materials such as nipa leaves, bamboos, and straws. The church was renovated to that of its present architectural structure from 1863 to 1870 using adobe,  tegula , and believe it or not duck egg whites to bond the adobe boulders together.

For our 2017 Visita Iglesia , we headed south to the provinces of Batangas and Quezon . Unlike the previous years where we only visit Spanish-era or historical churches, we decided to have a mix of shrines and churches in this year's Visita Iglesia itinerary. 2017 Batangas - Quezon Visita Iglesia Here's where we went on our 2017 Batangas & Quezon Visita Iglesia : National Shrine of Saint Padre Pio  in Sto. Tomas, Batangas Because of the distance of our house from our target provinces, our three-car convoy left home early to avoid traffic and headed to our first destination which is the St. Pio National Shrine in Sto.
