If you you've watched the movie, then you'll have an idea why. It's almost unthinkable today that there was a time that news traveled at a snail's pace. For months, a handful of Spanish soldiers still believed that the war wasn't over and Spain still...More

There must be an explanation to the small door which I missed but it's still beautiful. a nearby covered court with chairs serves as an alternate place to go when the crowd spills over from inside. it has chairs and the audio is good.

A good spot to thank God for blessing our trip to Baler and some extraneous activities. A church not so big nor so small but still you can feel and see the Baler culture... that is simplicity and beauty.

This church was used as a fort by the last holdouts of the Spanish empire. So much history was made in this church, it's too bad the facade and the surrounding areas have been overly renovated and has since lost most of its character. It...More

It has a good history and the facade was restored when we visited. It has a more interesting entrance than inside but we went in nonetheless to check it out. It's a nice quaint church and we just took photos outside since this was the...More

If you are not a Catholic, you might get overwhelmed if you go to this place during holy week. Not because its crowded, but because its dark and eery inside. The statues are covered in black fabric.

It is relatively near. Costa Pacifica is on the beach front while the Baler chruch is located in the city center. You could take a tricycle ride which will cost around 10-15 pesos per person or have a 15 minute short walk.
