    All about the Taal Heritage Town Day Trip.

    Branded as the “Little Vigan of the South”, Taal Heritage Town is overflowing with rich history, culture and beauty.  Taal is not only a heritage town but also a volcano, a scenic lake and the old capital of the Batangas province.

    It used to be located in present-day San Nicolas, but after the 200-day 1754 eruption, the biggest eruption of the Taal volcano recorded in history, the entire town was forced to move to a safer elevated location, farther from the volcano.

    During the Spanish era, the town continued to prosper and produced some of the country’s bravest national heroes whose ancestral houses are well-preserved and remain standing up to this date.

    A visit to Taal heritage town is not merely checking out the old houses and visiting Asia’s biggest church, but retracing the origin of the Tagalog people.

      You will be collected from your hotel in Manila and driven to Taal Heritage Town. The journey to Taal takes approximately 2.5 hours.

      This sightseeing heritage tour starts at Goco Ancestral House with the welcoming remarks and brief history lecture about Taal, facilitated by a local expert, Pio Goco, a member of the Goco clan and one of the many passionate Taalenos working hard to preserve Taal’s heritage.

      There are also several ancestral houses worth visiting like the Marcella Agoncillo and Leon Apacible.

      Lunch is served at the 2nd level of the Goco Ancestral House where you can indulge yourself with the local Taal delicacies.

      You will have time to take a deeper look into what the town looked like before until the present day.

      Visit the Basilica of Saint Martin de Tours. Climb the Belfry Town (optional) and see the breath-taking view of the heritage town from the top.

      Take the 125 San Lorenzo Ruiz Steps to reach the Casaysay Church. This is the home of the miraculous Our Lady of Casaysay. A short walk from Casaysay is the Sacred Well of Santa Lucia. Water coming from the well is believed to have healing powers.

      After the tour transfer to your hotel in Manila.
