I have an interest in the culture and history of Philippines, so I put together a small team and historicphilippines.com was born. I’m presently writing about the Historic Churches of Panay Island and especially those located in Iloilo Province.
The scope of the project will expand in the months to come to gradually include all the provinces of Panay.
You will no doubt notice that I haven’t covered many of the very famous big city churches. That’s simply because I have found that the smaller towns and villages offer some really beautiful and historically significant churches which ‘compete’ very well with their big city bretheren.
You should also know that I have not provided the complete results of my travels on the website. That’s because I’m saving some of things I’ve seen and discovered for the series e-books which I’ll be publishing in the near future.
If you like what you see here, you’ll just love the .pdf e-books, they’re packed with more photos, details and information on the churches than I could possibly include here. To obtain more information about them simply click on the button titled “Books/Calendars” on the menu bar above and follow the directions provided.
Finally, I’ve developed a Visita Iglesias presentation for Holy Week 2012 in which you can visit 7 churches in Iloilo Province and do the Way of the Cross at the same time, a major part of the Easter/Holy Week tradition that many Filipinos and Filipinas observe.
Visita Iglesias is highlighted on the website and it is available FREE CHARGE as a FREE DOWNLOAD for you to use and forward to friends and relatives overseas or at home here in Philippines, with our compliments. In fact, it’s probably easier for everyone if you just provide them with our website address which is: www.historicphilippines.com so that they can download it for themselves.
If you have suggestions as to what church or churches you would like me to visit and report on just e-mail me using the form below. I’ll do my best to accomodate as many of your requests as possible.
