Visiting Tayabas and Lucban in Quezon

I was able to visit again Quezon Province last January when we attended the wedding of my travel hubby’s cousin. This gave me another opportunity to check some of the tourist spots specifically in Lucban and Tayabas.

Before the event, we first went to Kamay ni Hesus in Lucban. Known for the 50ft big statue of the Ascending Christ, you need to climb 305 steps to reach the top with life size statues depicting the 14 station of the cross along the way.

We went next to Minor Basilica of St. Michael the Archangel in Tayabas. Known as Tayabas Basilica and the largest Catholic Church in Quezon, it is a baroque style constructed in the late 18th century.

We then proceeded to Nawawalang Paraiso Resort and Hotel where some of my hubby’s relatives are checked in to prepare for the wedding. Located in the foot of Mt. Banahaw, it is established in 1985 by Dr. Avelino Obispo.
