And the number one Holy Week tradition is Visita Iglesia
(Church Visit). Commonly done on Maundy Thursday or Good Friday, this involves visiting seven different churches and praying the Stations of the Cross. With the number of beautiful old churches to visit around the country
, going on a Visita Iglesia
can also enrich one’s appreciation of history and culture. In fact, to encourage faith-based travel, the Department of Tourism will be opening up seven chapels in Intramuros this Holy Week to allow people to go on a Visita Iglesia in the Walled City.
