"Cavite Religious Tourist Attractions"

St. Mary Magdalene Parish
This was built in 1624 and is one of the oldest churches in the Philippines. St. Mary Magdelene is the patroness saint of Kawit. The religiosity of the Kawiteños is deeply manifested through their fiestas, caracol, processions, and most especially, the Maytinis Festival, a Christmas Eve event that has become a tourist attraction.
St. Anne’s Shrine
Enshrined is a statue of the Virgin Mary, and her mother, St. Anne. It is located west, in front of Tagaytay Science National High School.
Our Lady of La Salette Shrine
This church was built by the American Missionaries of Our Lady of La Salette, known to Filipinos as Our Lady of Hope. The shrine is famous for its antique theme park and giant woodcarvings of the Last Supper and the Station of the Cross. Serenity is provided by well-tended pine trees, shrubbery, and expansive lawns. An imposing shrine of the Blessed Virgin Mary stands at the middle of a well-trimmed garden surrounded by flags of different countries where Catholicism thrives. Retreat houses, chapels, souvenir shops, and other interesting attractions make the place interesting not only for cursory visitation but for spiritual contemplation as well.
Nuestra Señora dela Soledad de Porta Vaga
Reputed to be a relic from Spain, it is a painting of the Virgin Mary framed in carved wood. The relic is said to have been discovered, beached on the shores between the old Puerto Vaga in Cavite City and Barrio San Roque, during the 18th century. The painting, presently set in precious gems, is also known as the “Virgin of a Thousand Miracles” because of many miracles granted to the faithful devotees from the day of its discovery to the present.

Southern Philippine Cuisine

In Mindanao, the southern part of Palawan island, Sulu and Tawi-Tawi, dishes are richly flavored with the spices common to Southeast Asia: turmeric, coriander, lemon grass, cumin, and chillies — ingredients not commonly used in the rest of Filipino cooking. Being free from Hispanicization, the cuisine of the indigenous Moro and Lumad peoples of Mindanao and the Sulu archipelago has much in common with the rich and spicy Malay cuisines of Malaysia and Brunei, as well as Indonesian and Thai cuisines.
