Basilica of the Immaculate Concepcion, Batangas City

basilica de immaculada concepcion batangas city

Basilica de Immaculada Concepcion is considered to be one of the oldest Catholic churches in the province. Situated at the end of the main road of the city where most schools, offices and businesses are located, this church serves as a place for reflection for most, after a hard and busy day of school and work.

The first church on the present site was built in 1581 by Father Diego Mojica, Augustinian Pastor of Calapan, Mindoro. In 1601, the stone foundation was placed for the second church on which the priests built from 1682-1721. The convent with artillery placements was built years later as a defense against sea pirates. After 179 years, the church was demolished. On the same year, the church was rebuilt through Fr. Pedro Cuesta’s endeavor. The church was then granted a Basilica status by Pope Pius XII. “Given in Rome, at St. Peters, with the seal of the Fisherman, on the 13th day of February in the year 1948, the tenth of our Pontificate -1948.” Since the church construction was offered to the Immaculate Concepcion, it was then called the Basilica de Immaculada Concepcion.

Though the Basilica has been constructed, years ago, it has maintained it’s well-built structure and exceptional make up. Vivid paintings on ceilings and walls are noticeable up to date.

  11. Why is it so hard to find mass schedules for the Basilica as well as the Holy Trinity Church? And they don’t answer their phones as well.

  15. Para kay Simeone:
    Sa tagal ko nang nagsisimba dyan sa basilica ng Immaculate Copnception e hindi ko pa naranasang maalisin ng pari o gwardya sa paking basta tama ang pinaparadahan mo. Baka naman kalesa at hindi kotse ang sinasakyan nung babaeng kakilala mo kaya pinaalis sa parking kasi baka magkalat doon.

    At para sa iyo Simeone, bakit hindi maghanap ka ng trabaho o mag-aral ka na lang kung istudyante ka pa at baka madagdagan pa yang nalalaman mo, puro tsismis kasi ang inaatupag mo e. Maggagawa ka pa kunwari ng blog wala namang nag follow. Tandaan mo ito: NAGKAKASALA KA SA GINAGAWA MO.
