The fourth and my favorite church that we visited was The Santa Maria Magdalena Parish Church. The Baroque church's completion took 16 years and is made out of sandstone.
It's situated at the town center like most of the catholic churches are. Capturing its beauty is a piece of cake thanks to the vast green environment that surrounds the church.
The inside might not be as ancient or grand like the other churches that we visited but I loved it the most because of the following:
️We came around 1pm and we had the church to ourselves the entire time of our visit.
️The people are welcoming and kind hearted. They allowed us to roam around without their supervision and just told us to look for their secretary if we need anything. Really nice!
️The church is the home to the shrine of Gen. Emilio Jacinto. His blood stained the floors of the sanctuary while being mortally wounded during the spanish war in 1898. Check the last photo!
The town of Magdalena is dubbed as the little hollywood of Laguna because of the numerous films that made the town its taping location. Most of it are FPJ films I think. There's also Moises Arcanghel: Sa Guhit ng Bala starring Eddie Garcia (1996), and even the latest Heneral Luna movie! I think much of that is credited to the religious landmark.
