St. Martin de Tours Basilica – This magnificent ‘larger than life’ historical monument is named after the patron saint of Taal, Saint Martin de Tours, whose fiesta is celebrated every November 11th. The Basilica’s size and Baroque façade is awe-inspiring. Its extraordinary structure is even more captivating with the addition of dome ceilings hand painted with intricate detail. Perhaps the most outstanding element is the illuminating altar wall made with shinning sterling silver and gold, symbolizing the sacred liberation of the tabernacle.
