Guide to Visita Iglesia in Siquijor

 

This guide to a Visita Iglesia in Siquijor was something I wrote for Tripzilla before this year’s Holy Week. I patterned this after a recent visita iglesia I did with a guest who visited Siquijor for the first time. While Siquijor will not boast of centuries-old and magnificent churches, we do have our share of historic churches. The simplicity of the architecture of the churches in the island will give you an idea of what are the island’s mineral resources (lime stones), the role of the island in the grand scheme of Catholicism in the country (a vacation/retreat place for friars), and how the island fared with the rest of the country during the two World Wars and calamities (earthquakes and typhoons). The churches are not as magnificent as other churches in the country. The churches in Siquijor pale in comparison to the San Augustin Church in the Intramuros. But I would like to believe that all of us, no matter how small, grand, simple or magnificent, make a part of our beautiful country.

FEATURE: Hanging Rice

Hanging Rice, an online site that features anything positively Cebu, did a feature on me some days ago titled Psyche: A Study on Whimsical and Vintage Style. We talked about thrifting and sources of good fashionable finds in the City. As many people would know, I am not a native of Cebu, and would never call myself a Cebuano. But I love Cebu very much and it has loved me back so much through the years I’ve been here. Thank you Hanging Rice for the feature, and hope to read more positively Cebu posts from you. ┬áThe feature and interview are here. (giggle, giggle)
