THE CHURCH A well-known architectural example in the Philippines, the Barasoain Church’s image is as symbolic as the Philippine flag itself in the Filipino’s desire the gain independence from foreign rule. The church’s design serves as a testament to its humble beginnings and to the period of history from which it has become known. BEGINNINGS Began construction in 1885 and completed in 1888, Barasoain Church is a stunning example to the period in which Baroque architecture in Spanish structures built in the Philippines has become popular. The presence of the stone church also implies the presence of a well-built community with religion placed in great importance. The stone church was constructed during the time of Fr. Juan Giron and was designed by Miguel Magpayo. It symbolized the founding of the town of Barasoain which was then a separate entity from the towns of Malolos and Santa Isabel. Years later after the Americans came to the country, the two towns will be again integrated with the town of Malolos with their parishes remaining as separate from one another. DESIGN Barasoain Church is an example of the typical church-convent-patio design of churches built during the Spanish period. The structure adopts elementary and well defined lines […]

Taal Volcano (Filipino: Bulkang Taal) is a complex volcano located on the island of Luzon in the Philippines. It is the second most active volcano in the Philippines with 33 historical eruptions. All of these eruptions are concentrated on Volcano Island, an island near the middle of Taal Lake. The lake partially fills Taal Caldera, which was formed by prehistoric eruptions between 140,000 and 5,380 BP. Viewed from Tagaytay Ridge, Taal Volcano and Lake presents one of the most picturesque and attractive views in the Philippines. It is located about 50 kilometres (31 miles) south of the capital of the country, the city of Manila. The volcano had several violent eruptions in the past causing loss of life in the island and the populated areas surrounding the lake, with the death toll estimated at around 5,000 to 6,000. Because of its proximity to populated areas and its eruptive history, the volcano was designated a Decade Volcano, worthy of close study to prevent future natural disasters. All volcanoes of the Philippines are part of the Pacific Ring of Fire. Wikipedia Photo: hidariki58, joy mulato

The cemetery is the interment place for thousands of mostly American veterans and Filipino Scouts who served up in the United States Army, and who died in divergence in World War II on military bases in the Philippines. President Barack Obama signed a law (Public Law 112-260) in January 2013 to operate and maintain Clark Veterans Cemetery following an agreement between the Republic of the Philippines and the United States. It was signed in December 2013 making Clark ABMC’s 25th cemetery. The construction of Manila American Cemetery in 1948 led to disinterment of the non-World War II dead from four post cemeteries onto Clark Air Force Base. The eruption of Mount Pinatubo in June 1991 led the U.S. Air Force to evacuate and Clark AFB was transferred to the Philippines in November 1991. The cemetery sustained to be open for burials after the transfer, but it had been damaged in the eruption and fell into disrepair.

History of Cebu Plaza Independencia Plaza Independencia StatuePlaza Independencia is one of the most significant sites in the history of Cebu. It is a symbol of independence and freedom from all the conquerors that tried to take over the island of Cebu. Its century old trees are witnesses to what the plaza/park had been through during the colonial days. The changes of its name emulated its role in the history of Cebu. The park was called Plaza de Armas in the early 1600 and served as a public square used as military training and parade grounds. It later had its expansion to reach nearby properties of the Cathedral of Cebu and was called Plaza Mayor. During the Spanish era, its name was changed to Plaza Maria Cristina in honor of the prevailing queen. Its name was changed again to Plaza Libertad during the American Colonial Period to acknowledge the liberty from the Spanish rule. When all the colonizers left the country and the land has attained its true freedom, it finally had its name Plaza Independencia. In 2006, when a tunnel connecting Cebu City to South Road Properties (SRP) was under construction, pre-hispanic human bones and some earthenwares were uncovered […]
The Panglao watchtower was built in 1851. The 5-storey hexagonal tower is reputedly the tallest of its kind in the Philippines but suffers from neglect. “A stone watchtower stands guard over the edge of the sea, a short distance behind the church. Reputedly Bohol’s tallest, the ponderous structure bears the year 1851 inside its lowest chamber. Its hexagonal plan is rare in the Philippines”. The structure is in poor condition. The wood members have all deteriorated and there is no access to the top floor because the wooden stairway that leads up has disappeared. The stone walls bulges outwards showing signs of structural stress and deterioration and the tile roof has caved in allowing rain and moisture to enter. This creates an environment conducive to the growth of algæ and vegetation. Like most old Spanish structures in Bohol, the Panglao watchtower also suffered from the 2013 earthquake. It’s structural integrity is in question and the whole tower is currently reinforced with bamboo poles both externally and internally to keep it from further damages.

History of Magellan’s Cross Magellan’s Cross holds a very big part of the history of Cebu. It is believed to be a Christian cross planted by the Portuguese and Spanish explorers headed by Ferdinand Magellan. It was planted upon their arrival in Cebu on March 15, 1521. That day also marked the birth of Christianity in the land. The original cross was believed by the people of old to have miraculous healing powers so they started chipping it away. Because of that, the government officials was prompted to supposedly encased it in another wooden cross made from tindalo.It is now housed in a small chapel. Rumors say though that the original cross was destroyed or disappeared after the death of Magellan. Today, the cross is housed in an octagonal pavilion called the “kiosk”. It is one of the main attractions for tourists because it is a part of country’s history. Location of Magellan’s Cross Cebu Magellan’s cross is housed in a small chapel located near the Basilica Minore Del Sto.

This is often done on whitewater or different degrees of rough water. Dealing with risk and the need for teamwork is often a part of the experience.
