To see the churches in Naga City was the first of many things one can do after setting foot on this progressive city of Camarines Sur. If normally, mall rats would mall-hop on a weekend, I took a different route and instead, went on a church-hopping spree. If Naga City is anything, it’s really famous for its devoted Catholics in the Bicol region, the very reason why it is considered a pilgrimage destination. After hailing a tricycle from the train station, I immediately asked the driver to take me to the nearest church. The driver and I had a short discussion about the many sights to see in Naga but I specifically wanted to visit some of the many churches of the city. My first stop, the Metropolitan Cathedral.
minutes away from the Peñafrancia Church. Unlike the first two churches, this one has a modern architectural design with its straight lines and smooth external finish.
