Nagcarlan Underground Cemetery

I spent some holy weeks years ago in Nagcarlan but this is my first time to visit Nagcarlan Undergound Cemetery. I am hearing a lot about the place but I have no idea on what to see which maybe why I didn’t push myself to go.

Upon knowing that the Nagcarlan Underground Cemetery is part of our trip, I am glad to finally visit the historical landmark. 

Nagcarlan Underground Cemetery is a burial located inside of the Church that was made in 1845 by colonial Franciscan Missionaries in Laguna province. The burial is technically beneath the Church maybe around 15feet below and was said used during the 1896-1898 Philippine revolution as a secret place of the Katipunan.

The Nagcarlan Underground cemetery was declared a historical landmark by the National Historical Institute in 1978.

No more masses being held at the church anymore. What you can expect here to see are the caretakers that maintain the area and supervise the visitors that are coming to see the place. 

It was almost closing time but we managed to get inside.

The old structure makes it remarkable. - entrance of the church.

Below the church - a bit creepy and cold here.

The altar underneath 

On the right side of the church is the stairs down the burial.

I am actually calling Sol to go back  as we are about to leave. 

Inside the church

Some tombs that surrounds the church

And we are leaving

Last picture taken outside the church.

And meet my travel buddies on this trip - That's me, Joel and Sol. All are Nikon fan.

And this ends our short worth it visit. 

How to go to Nagcarlan:

There are several bus terminals going to Sta Cruz (Buendia-Taft , Cubao, QC and in Alabang for those from the South.). You can take bus going to Sta. Cruz Laguna then get a connecting Jeep bound to Nagcarlan. Don’t forget to visit Nagcarlan church too!
