If you are a tourist in the city, you are spoiled for choice on places to go. Especially if you are a neophyte in the pilgrimage to our Blessed Ina, it can be a daunting task to think about where to start. Where can you learn more about the Patroness of the region? Where else, but at the Our Lady of Peñafrancia Museum!
It is no secret that Naga City’s roots in Catholicism run deep in every part of the metropolis. Whatever your orientation may be, you are aware of what makes the city tick, and what it stands for when it comes to one of the biggest Marian celebrations held in the city: the Peñafrancia Festival. And with the festivities starting to kick off once again, it’s always a good time to get reacquainted with one of the many Churches in the city. In particular, among locals, the Minor Basilica of Our Lady of Peñafrancia, or just the Basilica Minore.
MAJESTIC AND SOLEMN This is how Caceres Archbishop Rolando Octavus Joven Tria Tirona, O.C.D., describes this commemorative monument erected by the Rotary Club of Naga
to mark the 500 years of Christianity in the Philippines. The memorial stands at 15.21 meters representing the year 1521, when Christianity was first introduced in the country.
