When I was invited by a friend for his wedding at Calamba. I also took the opportunity to go around and visit the St. John the Baptist church.
Which was also the place of ceremony for the wedding.
I went a day early for the wedding to have more time to go around.
Established in 1859, it was the christening site of Jose Rizal. The original baptismal font has been preserved and refurbished. Reconstructed by Fr. Eliseo Dimaculangan after it was burned by the Japanese during WWII.
From the outside, you can tell that it is no ordinary church. It magnificently stand in the middle of the City where the ancestral house of Jose Rizal is just located on the next corner.
