The aisle to the altar

This is Asia’s longest aisle spanning 103 meters. If you’re a bride who wants to hog the attention to the fullest, then you better book your wedding at the Basilica of St. Michael the Archangel found at the very heart of old-city Tayabas. This church, this entire place will take you back to the past, like hundred years back.

The walls are peeling off and if you’d touch them, they break apart. That’s how old this church is. That’s me on the photo and behind me, to the left, is the pulpit. I wonder how many sermons it has served since it was built in the 1800s.
