Mabuhay and welcome to HistoricPhilippines.Com the home of the historic, old churches of the Philippines Islands, particularly those located on the Island of Panay in the south central Philippines. This region was the cradle of Christianity in the Philippines. It is where the Spanish Galleons travelling from Mexico landed on their voyages of exploration. The explorers, Magellan, Legaspi and others were accompanied primarily by Augustinian Friars, but also by Jesuits or Dominican Friars whose task it was to evangelize the inhabitants of the islands. The Philippines have a fascinating ecclesiastical history and we try to look into it and bring you their stories, however brief they may be. We hope you will enjoy your visit with us and the work we do for you!
