My #QCBlogVenture is here!
Quezon City celebrates 75th Diamond Jubilee Anniversary and they invited us to explore the beauty of their beloved city.
Quezon City is far, far away from me (Manila) Grabe ba maka-Far? Kasi ilang sakay din sya from our place and hindi ko sya super kabisado. But Quezon City is worth the travel for me and my hubby (^.^,) Why? kasi some of the Quezon City spots were part of our love story yiheeee! Plus I'm always up for roadtrips kaya game on!
|San Francisco Del Monte Church|
|St. Peter Baptist|
I like visiting old churches and St.Peter Baptist Church is classified as of one of the oldest church not just in QC but in the country. Oooh Vintage! and ramdam mo ang pagka-classic ng place nito in all angles. I'm so excited and It's my first time here.
In 1590, The original wood and nipa structure was built. Donated by the Governor General, Santiago De Vera by Fray Pedro and it is dedicated to Our Lady of Montecelli.

The first church and convent was built as a chapel cum resting house in 1590. Then into wooden structure in 1593, then rebuilt into adobe in 1599. The Chapel was destroyed during Limahong-led uprising in 1639 and completely destroyed by an earthquake in 1645. -http://quezoncity.weebly.com/
During our visit, the Altar is under reconstruction but that didn't stop the people's faith and still push through on their "Binyagang Bayan" happening that day.
After our quick visit on the church, We explore more about Sanctuario de San Pedro Bautista

Felt like I traveled from the time of Maria Clara.
It's so nice how they tried their very best to maintain this place and still look amazing as it was many years ago
