Santo Tomas

Santo Tomas, located in the Batangas province, is conveniently located near other cities such as Lipa, Calamba in the north, Los Baños, Alaminos, among others. It is also known to be the hometown of Miguel Malvar, the Filipino general who served during the Philippine-American War. Aside from these facts, not much else is known about Santo Tomas, but there’s more to see than one might think. A monument is made in honor of this Philippine hero and will prove to be a worthwhile visit if you find yourself in the area.

Visit the National Shrine of Padre Pio is world-famous as Padre Pio is one of the three only saints with the wounds of Jesus Christ. Another shrine of Padre Pio is found in San Giovanni of Italy. Pay a visit to the Santo Tomas Catholic Church, another landmark in this modest town. The Saint Padre Pio Parish and Shrine will leave one in awe because of its massive structure

For hikers and beginners, Mt. Manabu is a the perfect place to trek, which also makes for a good day trip. Many hikers often stop by a local coffee house on the way up the peak while admiring the scenic views it has to offer. Talon Falls in San Vicente also proves to be a good place for swimming and picnics. From there, a short hike will take you to Lagaslasan Falls and Tag-araw Resort, providing a secluded but relaxing recreational place for nature lovers.
