Our second stopped over after the Pahiyas Festival in Lucban Quezon is in Nagcarlan, Laguna. It is where The Church of San Bartholomew or Nagcarlang Church, one of the oldest church in the country.
Church facade and aisle
It was first built in 1583 of light materials by the priest Rev. Tomas de Miranda. Then in 1752 the second church was built using bricks and stones but was partly destroyed by a fire in 1781. And in 1845, Rev. Vicente Velloc added a loft for the choir in the reconstructed church.
