Simbahán by Regalado Trota Jose is an illustrated guide to fifty of the most culturally or aesthetically significant churches in the Philippines. Their descriptions are among the tidbits culled from anthropology, linguistics, geography, popular devotions, history, and local culture. As the unabashedly Roman Catholic country celebrates 500 year of Christianity, Simbahán hopes to provoke a “wander-lust” among pilgrims and tourists – beyond the beaches and “fun” – to visit 50 remarkable monuments to the piety and artistry of the Filipinos.
