Are you just in Manila or Cebu during the Holy Week? Do the visita iglesia, a time honored, lenten ritual especially done this Maundy Thursday by visiting 7 or 14 churches to reflect on the life, passion and death of the Christ. To guide you, check out my visita iglesia guides which are available FREE! Each church is treated with a beautiful facade image, a short history and, of course, a printable map that you can take with you on the road.
