"Old and Amazing" Taal Things to Do Tip by wabufamy

Taal Things to Do: 85 reviews and 248 photos


We made the Basilica our first stop in our trip to Taal Batangas. Being "The Biggest Catholic Church in Asia", we were intrigued by its size. The church dates back to the 1800's and is definitely big. As we were going around the church, a security guard suggested that we go up the bell tower, which was 96 steps up. We were led to a small door where the stairs was just probably 3 feet wide and dark even if there were small flourescent lamps along the way. It was eerie, but we found it really exciting. Definitely not for the claustrophobics. On top, you will get an awesome view of the town, including the shoreline. We didn't even realize we were that close to the beach already.
