Join the Philippine Embassy in London on a virtual tour of the Philippines' charming city of Iloilo for its first-ever Visita Iglesia in the Philippines on this episode of #Fiesta Filipinas on Saturday, 27 March 2021, 8:00 a.m. GMT. It will be livestreamed via Facebook.com/DFAPHL and on Youtube.com/DFAPHL.
Iloilo is home to one of the four baroque churches inscribed by UNESCO as National Cultural Treasure of the Philippines, the Santo Tomas de Villanueva Parish Church, also known as Miagao Church. Through the virtual Visita Iglesia, bisitas (visitors) who will join #FiestaFilipinas have the opportunity to marvel at the beautiful architecture of our churches, see the fast-developing city of Iloilo, and discover the country’s journey to nation-building and its rich heritage.
The “Fiesta Filipinas: An Online Celebration of Philippine Festivals” project is a six-part, multi-format online event series from December 2020 until May 2021, which will simulate the experience of a festival through a combination of live and pre-recorded videos and live workshops and activities. The project aims to introduce and showcase Philippine festivals, culture, and traditions to our global audience and invite them to the country when conditions are more favorable.
The project is organized by the Philippines’ Department of Foreign Affairs and its 94 Foreign Service Posts, in cooperation with the Department of Tourism and National Commission for Culture and the Arts.
See you all on Saturday!
