We heard their earliest mass at 5:30am. The interior of the church is amazing. I love how their chairs have spaces for one's bag. Despite being considered as the biggest Catholic Church in Asia, it didn't reduce the solemnity of the mass. We'll be back...More

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

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.

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.
