Next stop was the Nagcarlan Roman Catholic Church dedicated to St. Bartholomew (the Aglipayan Church is also dedicated to the same saint). The first structures of the church complex date back to 1752.
After about an hour, we took off to the towns of Liliw, famous for its footwear, and Majayjay. As we were very close to Lucban, Quezon, which was celebrating its Pahiyas Festival, we decided to continue on. Never mind if we had only about an hour to go around town, if we wanted to be back in Lipa City by 7pm. I think it was well worth the side trip. This was the third time I witnessed Pahiyas. I thought there were less visitors this year.
