Basilica of Our Lady of Manaoag

Basilica of Our Lady of Manaoag is located in Pangasinan. And since my father is from the same province, we frequently visit the church ever since I was a child especially if the family has special intentions, thanksgiving prayer or just to visit the Blessed Virgin Mary. Now that the Vatican has declared the Church as a Minor Basilica, every faithful who visits the church can be granted plenary indulgence (removing of temporal punishment) given you confess your sins, attend mass and receive communion.

About pinay travelaholic

A Filipina who loves to travel. Born with a family of travelers and started traveling when she was just 2months old. Raised in the hustle and bustling life of the metro but has savored the laid back lifestyle of the countryside during summer vacations. At a very young age, she has experienced being stranded on a train for 3 days, being thrown inside the window of the bus just to save a seat and “top loaded” (riding on the roof) on a PUJ just to reach their destination. …Traveling became her adventure since then.
