Recommendation by Lemi

The neoclassical red brick edifice of Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage Church in La Paz welcomes believers of the patroness of travelers. In the early 1600’s, the image of Nuestra Señora De La Paz Y Buen Viaje (Spanish for “Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage”) was brought to the Philippines by a Spanish galleon. Its successful voyage across the Pacific Ocean—plus several other unharmed travels—earned its recognition as a guide and protector for seafarers and pilgrims. Comprised of a large population of overseas Filipino workers (OFW’s) and seamen, many Ilonggos come to worship the icon (a replica of the original figure) that sits on top of the La Paz Church altar.
