Mexico

Mexico, Pampanga was named after a North American country that everyone knows about. It is a first-class municipality in central Pampanga with a large population of over 100,000 people. It is said to be founded in the late 1500s by the Spanish colonizers. And like many of the provinces in the north, Mexico is blessed with many colonial era churches. It a great place to visit for all the Catholic devotees (or even the history junkies) out there.

One of these churches is the Sta. Monica Parish Church and belfry. However, the church was destroyed in the World War II and what remains standing is the belfry. Other religious buildings include, Good Shepherd Parish Church, Our Lord’s Annunciation Parish Church, San Jose Parish Church, San Miguel de Archangel Parish Church, Santo Domingo de Guzman Parish Church, and two Spanish-era chapels.

These chapels happen to be some of the oldest in the country. The San Jose Matulid Chapel is the oldest in all of Pampanga while the Sabanilla Chapel is a stone chapel that is pretty with all of its intricate detail and carvings on its columns and inside walls.

Though this town is small, it bears a unique charm that everyone should see.
