I visited Taal Heritage Village a month ago and had a blast from the past. I think it's a gorgeous town to visit, not to mention its only 2 hours away from Metro Manila. Several of the ancestral homes are now open to the public for viewing and they are restored in mint condition. I'm totally amazed at how Taal... More

The Basilica is supposed to be the biggest Catholic Church in Asia, as posted in a marker located in a park just in front of it.

Tagytay was a great daytrip from Manila. It took about an hour and a half to get there and the view of the volcano is fantastic. Great scenery and picture taking opportunities. Be aware that many many people will approach you and ask if you want the trip to the volcano itself. We did not do this and we're glad... More

Taal founded by Spanish friars in 1572 is a fascinating compact town full of classic Spanish built walls and stairways, buildings and homes, as well as the largest Catholic church ever built in the whole of Asia. A second ancient church 'Caysasay' is a walk down a long old stone walkway. The interior of the main Cathedral has a range... More

Not known to many, Taal is such a beautiful place. Its colonial houses are well-preserved. In fact, many of them are lived up to this day. New things I learned while visiting the place. 1. Taal church is the biggest Catholic church in Asia. 2. Taal used to be the capital of Batangas during the Spanish era. 3. It is... More

After a day long walk up the Hill to Taal Lake & Volcano, we ended up back where they keep the ponies .....The wife says the restroom was nice so I beleive her. Lots of souveniers and great views from the trails around there. Food was reasonable and tasty.

Much of the town has been restored to its original grandeur - you can visit the church (including a tour through the old rooms and up to the bell tower). Then, spend some time walking through the town to appreciate the architecture. Some of the old homes are open to the public so that you can take a look around... More

You will be relaxed by the views in Taal heritage town. Hear mass in the biggest Catholic church and be amazed in century-old museums.The ancestral houses are a must to visit and appreciate the beauty of the old Philippines. Away from the hustle and bustle of the metropolis..

I do HDR Photography so I loved being in Taal. It was a great day trip out of Manila. I came the day there was a service at the church so that rocked any more.

The main road in the Heritage Village is akin to Vigan's Calle Crisologo minus the cobblestones. The homes in Taal look friendlier than the huge Vigan mansions covering entire blocks. The Taal mansions and homes are nevertheless as grand, if not actually grander. I have visited the most popular heritage homes enough for me to conclude that the best of... More
