It is a few kilometers away from the town center of Lucban. It is where you can find the giant grotto of Jesus situated on the top of a hill. The life and suffering of Jesus is also depicted here by life size statues. So if you are strong enough to climb 300 steps , and wants to enjoy the nice view of Lucban try this one.
Pilgrims usually travel to this place to attend the healing masses of renowned healing priest Rev. Fr. Joey Faller.
There are souvenir shops and stores where you can buy some treats for your friends.
Don't forget to have a taste of their local food after the Pahiyas festival or after you visit places at Lucban. Pancit habhab on a banana leaf is hard for me to eat though so I decided to have a plate :) You will put vinegar and try to eat without the aid of fork etc. Just put it directly to your mouth like a dog eating.
Lucban langgonisa is another one. They have this taste different from other local langgonisa of the Philippines.
Try to buy a colorful Buri hat for yourself so that you have a sun protection at the same time blends the colorful Pahiyas festival.
almost all are wearing Buri Hats
Derived from the local Filipino word “Payas,” which means to decorate.
Held every year on the 15th of May to honor St. Isidore (the patron of farmers, peasants, day laborers, and rural communities)
It's very colorful and I don't mind the heat while taking pictures of those colorful houses.
Actually each household decorates the facade of their house uniquely with colored “kiping” which are made out of grounded rice flour, shaped like leaves. It is colored radiantly in red, pink, green and other bright colors. Fruits,vegetables and other agricultural products are also being used for decorations. I think it is a contest and a big prize awaits the winner
Some other things are the bazaar of their handmade crafts like straw hats that are worn during the festival.
Don't forget to have a taste of their Lucban longganisa and pancit habhab.
If you are a old church lover like me, don't forget this very old church of Lucban.
This is the parish of Saint Louis, Bishop of Tolouse. Very old church that was first constructed in 1595. This is one of the purpose of Spaniards why they invaded Philippines to teach Christianity and construction of Churches after their invasion in 1521 begun on various location.This Church was was ruined by fires in different occasions so underwent renovations. The present church was completed in 1738.
