Plaridel

Plaridel, Bulacan is a first-class municipality, famously known as the place where the Battle of Quingua took place in the Philippine-American War. The battle was one of the first in an attempt to protect the First Philippine Republic from the Americans in the late 1800’s. Rich in history, the town is proud to have held such a glorious story under its helm.

Today, after several centuries, the town still stands, bearing proud ancestry and rich culture. Plaridel currently has several church destinations for Catholic devotees and an interesting festival in honor of Saint James the Greater.

Their most famous church is the Plaridel Church of Santiago Apostol, which has been a filming location for many of the notable shows in Philippine television, including, Maalala Mo Kaya?, Hating Kapatid, and several of the GMA Network’s teleseryes (soap operas). So, if you want to pretend to be a movie star, Plaridel has got you covered.

Other than that, however, the Horse Festival, held every December is one of the top tourist attractions in the area. The festival is also called the Salubong Festival, which means “welcome” in honor of the coming of St. James the Greater and his bringing of the equestrian replica from barangay Sipat. Part of the festivities is the parading of calesas. In the afternoon, they hold horse racing. It’s quite exciting and different for a visitor.
