This is highly recommended for people interested in history, culture, lifestyle of the Batangueños (particularly Taaleños) during the Hispanic era. See to it that you tried their culinary treasures: tapang Taal, panutsa, suman, maliputo, sinaing na tulingan, adobong dilaw, tawilis, empanada, and longganisang Taal.

Guides said that it is better than Vigan and when i went there i was astonished that despite being a laid back town, it is full of history where prominent names such as Felipe Agoncillo, Emilio Aguinaldo, Vicente Illustre, Leon Apacible, Marcela Agoncillo, Gregorio Agoncillo, Eulalio and Gliceria Villavicencio made their mark on the foundation of the nation. The town... More

Must try the suman and chocolate èh. The location is great if you want to roam around the ancestral houses. The staff are helpful and... More

Second to Vigan in Ilocos Sur, this has the most number of old Spanish ancestral houses- a glimpse of how people living those days.

Been here last Good Friday together with a good friend and my kids. We've visited the Basilica and attended the Holy Mass at Caysasay Church. Time well spent.

"The town... not the lake, and definitely not the volcano." Went here last March 20, 2016, Palm Sunday, with my family. Our original purpose was to visit the "Our Lady of Caysasay Shrine," little did we know that a well-preserved historic village would welcome us. It was as if time stood still during the Spanish Era. The houses were well... More

We started the guided tour when we met up with our tour guide, Pio Goco in the Goco house where he narrated his family's history and how he was helping to preserve Taal's history which is so much...

It was a moment's decision when me and my friends decided to swing by Taal Heritage Town from our vacation house in Canyon Woods which took 28 kms travel by car. The town was literally lined up with turn of the century structures which truly evoked mixed emotions. I couldn't help but think back in time when the area was... More
