Virtual Visita Iglesia

Visita Iglesia is a religious practice among Filipino Catholic faithful. It loosely means church-hopping or visiting as many churches as one could, or at least comply with the minimum of seven churches. It is usually being practice every Maundy Thursday and became an act of penance during the Holy Week. The Philippines, having the largest Catholic populace in Asia, is a home to many majestic, historical, and breathtaking churches. So the tradition of Visita Iglesia lives long in the country.

If you want to experience this great tradition, you can try it online by visiting the "virtual" Visita Iglesia established by our local clergy, But then again, it's more serene if you try it offline.
