Photographer's Note

3-frame stitched/color adjusted.
Basilica of St. Martin of Tours in Taal, Batangas.

I made a traslation of the historical marker:
Taal Basilica (1575)
First built by Father Diego Espina in 1575 in what is now known as San Nicolas, which washistorically a part of Balangon. It was destroyed when the volcano erupted in 1754. It was rebuilt at the present site in 1755, but was destroyed by an earthquake in 1849. Reputed to be the largest Catholic church in the Far East, construction of the present church was started in 1856, according to the plans of Lucina Oliver, an architect. It was inaugurated in 1885.
