Toledo City Museum

saint capilla

Capilla Sta Ana and Museum
9AM to 12NN / 1PM to 4PM
Admission fee Php 100 for locals / Php 200 for tourists

This beautiful chapel is owned by a native of Toledo who now lives abroad. In the air-conditioned chapel is the owner's collection of antique religious items, and carvings and paintings of saints. (Taking photographs of the collection inside the rooms are prohibited.) Even the doors of the chapel are antique! If I ever get married, I want to get married here. But they don't do wedding ceremonies here, just renewal of vows.

Outside the chapel is a garden with a small hedge maze. Take my advice: Don't attempt to get in the maze in the boiling heat of the sun. It will take some time to get to the center of the maze and out the same way! But if you need to get your 10,000 steps for the day, be my guest!

Reminders

  • Hop on a bus bound for Pinamungajan, as it will pass by Capilla Santa Ana. If, however, you took the bus bound for Balamban, tell the driver or conductor to drop you off at Gaisano Metro. From there, take a tricycle ride to Capilla Santa Ana (fare is 7 to 8 pesos)
  • If you have a GoPro or any camera with a fish-eye lens, make sure to bring it with you.
  • Keep your voice down, and behave, when visiting Capilla Santa Ana. Remember, it is a place of worship and a community center.
  • Bring water and snacks.
  • You can go there directly without prior booking, but I strongly suggest that you contact them a day prior to your visit.
