Overview

Finding the perfect getaway spot to experience rich history, culture and beauty is no ‘Taal’ order as you embark on this guided walking tour around Taal Heritage Town. This sightseeing heritage tour starts at Goco Ancestral House with the welcoming remarks and brief history lecture about Taal, facilitated by a local expert, Pio Goco, a member of the Goco clan and one of the many passionate Taalenos working hard to preserve Taal’s heritage.

Explore the many iconic landmarks with your expert guide and soon it will be time to answer your grumbling stomach with a delicious lunch. Served at the 2nd level of the Goco Ancestral House, you can indulge yourself in the local Taal delicacies from appetizers to the main course and to desserts. Post lunch, the walking tour takes you to the Archdiocesan Shrine of Our Lady of Caysasay, the church dedicated to the miraculous image of Mother Mary called Our Lady of Caysasay. A few ways from the church is the hillside well called Sta. Lucia Well and is believed that the waters coming from the spring have miraculous powers. Well, only one way to find out!

Next stop are the ancestral houses of some of the prominent Philippine National heroes such as Marcela Marino Agoncillo, a renowned Filipina in Philippine history as the principal seamstress of the first and official flag of the country, gaining her the title of “The Mother of the Philippine Flag” and Don Felipe Agoncillo, a diplomat, revolutionary hero and a major supporter of the revolt against the Spanish forces. After covering major landmarks, wrap up for the day by indulging in Filipino street food with the special Halo-halo for snacks, a popular Filipino dessert with a mixture of shaved ice and evaporated milk topped with coconut, sago, gulaman, mashed tubers, fruits, flan, and ice cream.
