9 Images of Prayer and Solitude on Instagram (Part 1)

 

Holy Week is here and as part of the usual pilgrimage is the "Visita Iglesia". And here at ChoosePhilippines, we give you Visita Iglesia in a digital way. We scoured instagram and found Travel Insiders that have tagged us upon their visit in churches in the whole of Philippines. 

 

1. Basilica of St. Martin of Tours - We just love interiors. And this interior is just awesome.

2. Molo Cathedral - This photo makes it into the list because of the way the nature has captured the ruin-istic design.

3. Sta Monica Church - We agree with Jernel, the raw appeal of the interior just makes this awesome.

4. Nuestra senora de la porteria parish - this photo wins the best light and shadow contrast award.

5. St Martin de Tours - The archictecture and statue reminds us a bit of the Trevi Fountain in Greece.

6. Lazi Church - This church reminds of an ol' barn yard.

7. Paoay Church - We just love the greens leading to the rustic church.

8. Carmelite Monastery - the pointed-oval architecture and symbol stained windows makes this a stand out in usual church designs.

9. San Diego Church - this whole shot captures the church just right, even focusing on the dome-roof structure.
