Gorgeous Naga

So, after a short stop in the city of Talisay (we took a couple of shots of the old church and the World War 2 landing monument), Arnold and I were back on the road. Our next stop was the gorgeous City of Naga. We parked the car in front of the gym and headed towards one of the most easily-recognizable road-side churches in Southern Cebu – the Saint Francis Catholic Church. More popularly known as the Naga Church, the Saint Francis Catholic Church was built in the 17th Century.

Main door of the road-side church. Notice the details.

The belltower stands a few meters from the actual church.

Intricate details. They look like the figures in a totem pole.

Statue of Saint Francis (?)

Wood art in one of the many side doors.

A small reminder

Church interior. Super gorgeous.

View from the side.

After taking a few more photos, we went to the park on the other side of the road. Here’s a shot fo the South National Road.

The old Municipal Hall.

The park’s fountain is surrounded by the 12 different zodiac signs. Here’s Aquarius. Hehehe.

  1. Clean, pristine .. beautiful park. I love the lamps. Are those lamps as expensive as the lamps in our city streets? I wonder. Whatever! The beauty of Naga is ‘makadani’ gyod!

  2. daghan wak wak,cheap prosti,corrupt mayor,very polluted,crimes rampant & heavily populated thats what i like about naga.

  3. At last, imo na jud gi feature ang NAGA,,, KA HUGYAW… jejeje! ke dinhi ra tawn ko mag bike2x kada gabie… dinhi pud mag date2x… og kun ge initan ka, naay MANGO SHAKE tag 5 pesos ra tawn. taga lungsod jud ko or i say syudad. hahaha. but i still call it a town. nindot naman daan ang plaza sauna pa. mas nindot pa tong fountain sauna ke permi man paandaron. naay advantage-disadvantage pero kun nahan ka molaag payts keu.

  4. By the way, about the lamps, barato rana unlike there in the city og sa katong didto sa Mandaue. inegka gabie, ineg pasiga ana, colorful ang lights ana labi na kanang ge kuralan gyud nga lights, 5 lights with 5 colors.

    bahin sa ongo, wa pa tawn ko kita og ongo. mga pampam – ambot intawn di man na sila taga Naga. politics??? – never mind.

    travel hours from Naga to Cebu City and vice versa – it’s 1 hour, kun way traffic the usual day time basta mag bus lang; if you have your own vehicle, less than an hour ari mo agi sa SRP. used to travel everyday going to school and work. ^_^

    1. because of the old belfry was destroyed during war world II. and the very old bells were stolen ” and if the bell was use the sound would reach up to tuyan and san fernando.”
