This is impressive. But, it's under restoration and doesn't live up to it's potential. I look forward to seeing it when everything is completed. I hope they update the inside as well. I visited during the holiday light display in Taal. I had a lot of fun. The light display is worth seeing. The church is on a hill over looking Taal.

It’s really nice! However the facade was under restoration when we visited the church, though it was evident to be the largest church in SE Asia, with nice historical background.

It was a long drive from Manila to reach this place to visit this basilica dedicated to St. Martin of Tours. It is reputed as the biggest Catholic church in Asia (although I didn't get that impression when I stepped inside of it). Its construction dates back to 1856, while an older church (built in 1755) used to stand in its actual site. The church looks quite nice and big inside, with three naves and a typical Latin cross structure. The façade looks even more imposing and impressive. It's sad that you cannot fully appreciate it because your view is blocked by cars parked right in front of it and the many stalls selling foods and drinks set up on the square. At any rate, this church is still worth-visiting. It's definitely one of the main tourist attractions and landmarks of Taal.

As of now it is under renovation, you can see outside the scaffoldings., when you go inside you will see the beauty of the church. I am able to attend the night mass and the speaker/sound is not clear for the preach if you are located near the back When the choir sing, it seems that angels are singing. Ps. Its more beautiful in taal if you will visit near Christmas because of the lights

an iconic building currently being renovated which will save the building for generations to come. as with many religious buildings it continues to be used without the money being invested to maintain it it is a dark atmospheric historical building and dusty inside but very impressive and when works are complete will continue to be iconic for further generations
