Taal Heritage Town Tour

Welcome to Taal – not the lake nor the volcano, but the charming town situated in Batangas.

Walk back in time as you wind through rows of bahay na bato. Get a glimpse of the old life as you dine in the ancestral houses, all the while exploring their well-preserved interior.

Climb the belfry of the age-old Basilica de San Martin de Tours, considered as the largest Catholic church in Asia, and get a panoramic view of the town with the sea in the horizon.

Bring home mementos of your day trip as you head home. Taal is known for their intricate barong embroidery as well as the sharp butterfly knife, giving it the nickname Barong Capital and Balisong Capital of the World. For sweet teeth, Taal makes wonderful panutsa, a round peanut brittle crystalized in rich caramel.

Join our Taal Heritage Town tour and relive the olden days!
