Three majestic churches that you can drive to this Holy Week


Getting out of the hustle and bustle of Metro Manila is something individuals and families do during Holy Week—and for some families, this also means a trip to one of the many scenic churches throughout the Philippines. Robert Bosch Inc. gives some tips and tricks on how to make the out-of-town drive as smooth as possible.

First, check the body of your car and its core before leaving the house, and drop by your local Bosch Car Service workshop for professional maintenance and repair. All Bosch Service Centers are fully equipped with industry-leading facilities and experts to help you diagnose every component of your vehicle so it is prepared for the road.

For those who don’t want to venture too far out, you can visit the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, or the Malolos Cathedral, in Malolos, Bulacan. The cathedral’s beauty echoes Greek and Roman accents that have survived many restorations throughout the years. People from around the Philippines come to the Malolos Cathedral to celebrate life, faith and tradition. Your car’s injection system is responsible for distributing fuel and energy to your vehicle, so to save cash and time, make sure you watch your fuel consumption regularly. Bosch’s Lambda Sensors are proven to ensure fuel consumption savings even while you’re on the move.

For those taking a longer trip, you can visit the St. Augustine Church, or Bantay Church in Ilocos Sur. It was rebuilt in the 1950s after World War II. It has vaulted ceilings and pointed arches, which are common features of neo-Gothic architecture. There is also a brick-made bell tower that has withstood the test of time near the church. Many go to Bantay Church not only for the religious experience, but also for the historical exposure that both children and adults will enjoy. Bantay Church is located five hours away from Manila, so you can avoid engine break down by powering up your starting and ignition systems, and checking or replacing your sparking material and ignition coil before hitting the road. Bosch has many high-performance spark plugs, ignition circuits, ignition coils and plastic marten protection pipes to ensure your travel is hassle-free.

For the most adventurous travelers, you can visit San Jose Church in Ivana-Basco, Batanes. The church represents Filipino craftsmanship and spirit with its modern exterior and ornaments, and also has withstood the test of time and the elements. The church also fronts the Ivana Seaport, which gives tourists a perfect view of the sea and landscape. The church is located 659 km from Manila. Your vehicle’s security in public places is a top priority. Today’s new innovations have made today’s delicate car parts tamper-proof. You can outfit your car with Bosch’s Vehicle Security System to ensure that your car is safe. Its Grade A central locking and alarm systems will allow you and your family to have peace of mind.
