    Facade of The Calumpit church
    4 more images

    This is the oldest church here in Bulacan....older than the Barasoain Church......if im not mistaken it is more than 400 years old. It has an underground tunnel.....related to the tunnels made by the Katipuneros during their fight against the Spanish forces in the 18th century. Stories circulated that when the tunnel was discovered......they found gold bars and statues of animals made of gold there.

    When i was to make a vivit of the place today July 04, 2011
    I was surprised that it had undergone major major changes compared thirteen years ago....
    this is much better than before...
    I also noticed that maybe they have closed the tunnel in the church.........for the obvious reason i think......:)

    Sip a cup of Coffee in my HOUSE

    by paolodecastro Written Jun 24, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Have a sip of cofee in our balconaje.....:)

    It is about 3 minutes away from the town center.......i take pride on my house...its an ancestral house built during the early part of the 1930’s but the materials used were from the original house dated from the early 1900’surely...it cannot be compared to the Bahay na Bato in Malolos those of the Tiongsons, Estradas, etc.,... it is much older .......but simpler than those, another thing is that my house have many stories to tell. It was used as a Japanese Garrison during the WW2.Then after all of this i will let you taste my mother’s version of Atchara and Burong Mangga.......we used to give it on family friends during special occasions.

    Every TUESDAY is a market day here so expect traffic in the national road. This is the busiest part of the week where one can do shopping on a variety of goods...from animals......to food..to clothing...to plants...to any items that can be sold and can be bought. But you have to remember...this is a market...and when there’s a market there are pick pockets.....
