AAP 2nd Caravan - 3rd Stop: Taal Heritage Village (Taal Town Proper)

November 27, 2010

So far, we've been to the Museo De La Salle and the GBR Museum in Cavite.  The next part of the tour will take us to Batangas Province, to the Tall Town Proper to be exact.  We passed some great scenery too that kept the kids entertained on the way.

The Taal Town proper, I just learned is a bevy of  historical treasures.  The Taal Heritage Village is in fact famous for its ancestral houses and are in the process of renovating and restoring much of the dilapidated structures to bring them to their former glory.   (Notice the 7-11? haha)

After the ride, we stopped at the Taal Basilica where right beside it was the Escuela Pia and the Taal Cultural Center where we all had our lunch break.  It was a native buffet of adobo, tapa, atsara and native delicacies.  The best part for me and Dana was the coffee! hahaha Batangas brew is the best! :D  If you're interested in knowing more about the Taal Town Proper, feel free to visit their website, http://taal.com.ph/ and I found another website, http://www.lakwatseradeprimera.com/batangas-exploring-taal-heritage-town/, that has a lot of good pictures, descriptive prose and generally good information! :)  Oh and before I  forget, we also bought a lot of souvenir goodies like panutsa (sweetened nuts, like peanut brittle but different), pastillas and uraro.
