Joining a group of bloggers for a road trip to Laguna.
Our first stop is in the Underground Cemetery of Nagcarlan, Laguna. Nagcarlan is one of the Municipality which is around 103 kilometers south of Manila.
Nagcarlan Underground Cemetery is said to be one of its kind in the Philippines, which was established and build by the Franciscan Missionaries under the lead of Father Vicente Velloc in 1845. The church was built together with the cemetery, which was said to be rich in history.
Here are the photos and hope you will enjoy a simple tour.

This is what you will see inside the underground cemetery. This is also a secret place where the Filipino revolutionaries or Katipuneros (KKK) meet for their battle plans and also their shelters. The oldest tombs dated was 1886. The Underground Cemetery was declared national historical landmark by the National Historical Institute in 1978.
It was one great trip with a group of bloggers. Thanks for the road trip and hope we can make more adventures and road trips.
