Taal Basilica by lagal[og]

The Basilica de San Martin de Tours in Taal, Batangas is the largest church in Asia. The church was first established in 1575 by Augustinian missionaries, before being destroyed by the Taal volcano in 1754. It was then rebuilt in a resettled Taal, before being damaged by an earthquake in 1852. Happily, third time’s the charm; the final rebuilding began in 1856 and was completed in 1878.
It was restored in 1953 for the coronation of Our Lady of Caysasay, a 1603 image of the Immaculate Conception given the title Queen of the Archdiocese of Lipa, whose aid the inhabitants of Taal had sought after the 1754 volcanic eruption.
