Visita Iglesia 2019

Just like the Holy Week of the past years, this year was no different as I commemorate it with church visits.  This year though, I did not use my GPS tracker as I walked practically the entire way.  Here’s my route this year.

Visita Iglesia 2018

Visiting churches had become my tradition every Holy Week and this year is no different.  This time though, I did not go for numbers and instead picked seven churches that I really am fond of.

Visita Iglesia 2017

Like in the past years, the Lenten Season again brought me around the city of Manila to visit 14 churches.  I didn’t deviate much from my Visita Iglesia last year, but I did it this year on a Good Friday.

Visiting multiple churches during Holy Week, also known as Visita Iglesia, had become a tradition of mine for the last few years and this year I had the chance to revisit some of the most beautiful and revered churches in the country.  Here are the 14 churches I had visited this Lenten season.

Visita Iglesia 2015

Visita Iglesia 2011

Visita Iglesia (Spanish: Church Visits) is the tradition of visiting seven churches on Holy Thursday as penance.
