The church was awesome, really huge. The museum is not well kept but it is very educational. Visiting Taal was like a journey back in time because of the old and beautiful houses in the town

This place will bring you to the Spanish colonisation era! The Basilica is so fantastic even it is made from lime stone and egg yolks, and it is still existing!!

A classic vintage look on the outside and quite big and great on the inside. Love the ceiling art and the lighting of the sun when its setting. All fans are working and that a great deal for most of us. Enough parking space.

Astonishing and a very big church. In fact, as they say, it is the biggest church in Asia. We find its architectural designs very intricate.

A very nice, old Church that has maintained its original charm. The interior is so detailed that I define it to be awesome. It's definitely a must-visit whenever you are in Taal. I just hope that they have already started retrofitting of the structure. I...More

ride a bus going to Lemery Batangas and from there ride a jeepney going to Taal. Not sure about the accomodation though since we only stayed there for a whole day trip. You can search here in Tripadvisor for any deals.
