     After we watched the Singkaban Festival street dance at the Provincial capitol of Malolos the group decided to visit the old structures around the city. Christopher Cunanan a close friend of Librero served as our tour guide.

     Other students said History is one of the most boring subjects in school, because all you need is to read and memorize there’s no challenge at all not like the other subjects like Math and Science but for me I always take History seriously even it was not related to my course. Can you believe that it was my first to see Intramuros with fellow travel bloggers last August 2013 for the many years that I stayed here in Manila that was the only chance that I could visit the historical site of Manila. After our free tour with Carlos Cedran, I’m fascinated with the old churches, houses and biography of our great ancestors. Reading a history books is not enough you must also visit the historical site to know better the stories behind of each site.

Barasoin Church

     The church was known as Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Parish built in 1630. This church housed the revolutionary congress which was inaugurated on September 15, 1898. Pedro Paterno was President. It was here that the congress, among other measures, discussed and approved the Malolos constitution. The image of Barasoain church was also printed at the reverse of old ten peso bill, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas stopped printing this denomination in 2002 and was replaced by coins. In December 2010 upon the issuance of the new Philippine Peso bill. The Barasoain Church is finally back in Philippine banknote depicting in the 200-Peso Bill.

Casa Real

     This was built during the Spanish period in the Philippines 1767-1768, and first Municipality of Malolos, and served also as office of Gobernadorcillo during 1863-1892. A printing press during the Malolos Republic, the Casa Real was restored in 1852 and converted into a municipal library. It is now a museum under the management of the National Historical Institute and serves as the final repository of still existing memorabilia.
