The Best Places to Visit in Cavite and Laguna for Your Holy Week Vacation

Some days have gone in just a blink of an eye and some crawl slowly. In between those days, you might feel like you are losing track of everything. Demotivated to even leave your bed. That’s the sign. And while the holy week is celebrated to commemorate the important times of our Lord, Jesus Christ, it’s also the perfect time to ponder about what’s happening around, evaluate yourself, pause, and just take a break. Take a few days off from everything. RFO House and Lot by Crown Asia surely did provide a secure and cozy place for you, but the outside world can give you comfort too. Now that everything is slowly going back to normal, take this chance to go out, spend time, and capture new memories with family and friends.

For almost 2 years, everyone spent their life inside their four-cornered RFO House and Lot that they are not so sure where to go or what places to visit. Worry no more! Here in the south, an individual can experience both worlds – the comfort and the fun. Because the south specifically Dasmarinas Cavite and Laguna, are the home of picturesque mountain views, outstanding beaches, and various entertainment establishments and activities everyone can enjoy. This coming holy week, for some individuals who do Visita Iglesia, you can stop by the different historical churches such as Our Lady of Candelaria Parish which is known for being the oldest colonial baroque architecture and is located in Silang, Cavite, St. Gregory the Great Parish Poblacion, Indang Cavite. And some other churches like the Saint John the Baptist Parish Church in Liliw and Saint Sebastian the Martyr Parish Church in Lumban, both are situated in Laguna.

With your religious obligations out of the way, you can spend more time relaxing.

Aside from the aforementioned churches, here are some of the hidden gems Cavite and Laguna have that you should visit once in your life. Spend your holy week vacation exploring new places that can turn into your favorite ones. Here are popular holy week destinations in Cavite and Laguna.
