Laguna Travel Guide - St. Mary Magdalene Church (Magdalena)

St. Mary Magdalene Church (Magdalena)

Magdalena Church

Magdalena, Laguna is the "Home of the Famous St. Mary Magdalene Church." This church was constructed in 1851-1871. It is made of stones and bricks and has a sandstone facade. The church is located at the town center or plaza, just across the municipal town hall of Magdalena. When I saw the town plaza and the church's surroundings, I was very impressed with the beauty and cleanliness of the place. It was also very peaceful and awe-inspiring.

Church bell and image of St. Mary Magdalene

An image of St. Mary Magdalene adorns the church's facade.

Trivia: The Spanish revolt in Magdalena area started on November, 1896 when the male residents joined the revolution. On February 1898, after being wounded in a battle with the Spaniards at the Maimpis River, Philippine revolutionary hero Emilio Jacinto sought refuge in St. Mary Magdalene Church.
