Pilgrimage Town!

Since the Philippines is one of two predominantly Catholic Countries in Asia(the other one is East Timor), ther are many pilgrimage site of Roman Catholic Pilgrims and the two most popular is Antipolo in Rizal Province and Manaoag here in Pangassinan province. Our Lady of Manaog is the Patroness of the sick, the helpless and the needy hence many go on pilgimage here. In 1610, a native man who was walking home heard a Lady's mysterious voice. He looked around and with great awe saw the radiant Lady with a Rosary on her right hand and a Child on her left as she stood on a cloud veiling a treetop. The man fell on his knees. He told the people of the apparition. And soon right on the spot where the Lady appeared a church was built. A town quickly flourished around it and was called "Manaoag".

Manaog is about a six hour drive north of Manila to Pangasinan Province via Car or Public Bus.
