Malolos, Bulacan

I have seen and visited the place so many times but this is my first time to take pictures of it and blog it.. 

The first time I went here was when my uncle got married in Malolos, Bulacan in the late 90s. Then way back year 2007, almost twice a month, I would be going here to visit someone. 

Recently, last January 12, 2014, after paying a visit to someone, I roamed around the city and took pictures of the various tourist spots in Malolos.

First spot to visit - the historical Barasoain Church.

The church played a significant role of Philippine history.

It is the place where the Revolutionary Congress convened in 1898 and where the Malolos Constitution was passed.

Second stop - Casa Real Shrine

A five minute walk from the Barasoain Church, Casa Real Shrine is part of one's tour of Malolos. 

It also played a significant role in Philippine history as declared by the National Historical Institute.

Open - Tuesday to Sunday
8:00 am to 4:00 pm 

Third stop is the biggest church - Malolos Cathedral

The interior of the church

The convent was the place where Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo held office as President of the the First Philippine Republic from 1898-1899.

Last Stop -   Sta. Isabel Church

While I was hearing mass inside the Cathedral, I asked someone if there was another old church within the vicinity of Malolos and luckily, there was this church. I paid P40.00 for a tricycle ride from the Cathedral to this church and it was 10 minute ride .

After seeing the church and praying for the third time, I went back home in Batangas.


  1. Very interesting post about Malolos. I hope you also went to the Kamestizuhan District which is just near the Malolos Cathedral. It was one of the stamping sites I went to when I completed my Lakbay Rizal@150 passport. There is a historical marker in Kamestizuhan District for the school of women to whom Rizal wrote the famous letter, "To the Young Women of Malolos." There is another house there, the Bautista house, which is known as a place where Rizal stayed during his visits to recruit members for La Liga Filipina.

  2. yes, actually we are planning to go there in kamestizuhan for group project, information about the ancestral house there, because i am actually a tourism management student. whom we will ask there for information about the ancestral house? you already went there right?
