It was during the Lucban San Isidro Pahiyas Festival last May 15 when I first experienced the beauty, colors, life and energy of one of the country's finest, Lucban, Quezon.
As one of the Philippine's most colorful festival and tourist attraction every summer and actually at any time of the year, the Pahiyas Festival is frequented by a lot of people because yes, it's prettier in person than in photos.
As it happened on a Sunday, oh, a lot of people were really there -- from families to groups of friends to work colleagues to a lot of foreigners -- the place was jam packed to the max!
You have to leave extra early to be able to get there right in time before the crazy traffic of cars and people start. From Quezon City, you can ride a bus going directly there so be sure to manage your time well.
A usual day tour for the Pahiyas Festival starts if you will be able to attend an early scheduled mass here at the San Luis Obispo de Tolosa Parish Church.
This fine looking church is one of the most visited sights when you're in Quezon. It's usually a part of a traveler or visitor's itinerary when you go here.
With its perfect blend of Baroque and Castillian architecture came to life an old looking, classical holy ground that's a pretty sight even from afar.
Located at the center of the town, the San Luis Obispo de Tolosa Parish Church is a good place to start your trip wherein you can ask for safety and guidance with your whole day travel.
Within the holy ground lies a gazebo, a landscaped outdoor garden, a basketball court for the sports fanatics and a very nice landscaped area wherein you can just hang out with your friends and families after attending mass.
Definitely one beautiful sight to see when you are in Lucban, Quezon.

Just a few steps away from my friends house, my friend and i visited lucban church. I really don't know but when i started to travel to different places here in the philippines, i make sure to visit historical and old catholic churches. Been too fascinated with it, the structure, facade, interiors and history. And i still do believe that when it's your first to visit a church, offer a prayer then make a wish and it will come true but ofcourse having that strong faith in him matters most.
Apparently, this church is not named under San Isidro Labrador, the patron of famers (the origin of the pahiyas festival) instead, named after a catholic bishop.
