Cavite: Baldomero Shrine | Imus Cathedral | Etc.

For the past two weeks, I've written posts about my road trips to Cavite last April 9 and June 10, the first one about the Aguinaldo Shrine in Kawit while the second post about one of the favorite summer coolers of Filipinos, halo-halo (Bacoor). Being one of the eight provinces who revolted against the Spaniards, Cavite has many interesting places worth exploring. Unfortunately, as I've mentioned in my previous post, some of the places we visited were closed during that time so we just took some photos of them. Here are some of the places we stopped by during the said road trips:

Baldomero Aguinaldo Shrine

Baldomero Aguinaldo Shrine - Kawit, Cavite
Gen. Baldomero Aguinaldo
Gen. Baldomero Aguinaldo, cousin of Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo, is also one of the leaders during the Filipino-American war in 1899. He is the son of Cipriano Aguinaldo and Silvestra Baloy, was born on February 28, 1869 and studied in Ateneo and University of Sto. Tomas. He served as the Director of Registry of Deeds; president of the Sangguniang Magdalo of the KKK (Kataas-taasang Kagalang-galangang Katipunan ng mga Anak ng Bayan), 1896; secretary of Finance, 1897; one of the signatories in the 1897 Biak-na-Bato Constitution; etc. He died on February, 1915.

The Gen. Baldomero Shrine was donated to the Philippine government by then Prime Minister Cesar E.A. Virata, grandson of Gen. Baldomero Aguinaldo. It was built in 1906 for Gen. Baldomero Aguinaldo's family; was originally made of Narra and Molave. In 1982, the house was restored by the Intramuros Administration.

Before the road trip, I searched for some interesting places in Cavite and this shrine was one of the many historical sites I found. I haven't heard nor read about it before so I was curious and I made sure we'll go to this place. Unfortunately, we were not able to take a look inside the shrine as it was closed during that time. Baldomero Aguinaldo Shrine is open Tuesday to Saturday, 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM; 1:00 PM to 5:00PM.

Imus Cathedral

Imus Cathedral - Imus, Cavite
This church was founded in 1795 by the Recolletos priests with Nuestra Senora Del Pilar and St. John the Baptist as the patron saints, under the leadership of Francisco de Santiago, ORSA, the first parish priest. From a mere chapel in Balangon, it was transferred in its current location in 1823. In this location, a new church made of stone and bricks was built. In 1897, the church was converted into Cathedral and has become the diocese of Imus.

  1. I really thank you for sharing kasi di ko pa nakita etong place na eto and different churches. Also for sharing the history about them dahil nakalimutan na ang mga pinagaralan nong bata pa ako. Good to refresh the memory and be proud to be a filipino and my home country. Have a blessed sunday!

    1. Haha, "da who" din ang reaction ko ng first time na mabasa ko yun name na Baldomero Aguinaldo. Now, alam ko na kung sino sya, sya pala ang lolo ni Cesar Virata, yun dati prime minister natin nung panahon ni Marcos. Sayang at di kami nakapasok, mas marami sana ko nalaman tungkol sa kanya, or sana mas marami akong photos. ;)
