escuela Pia at Taal heritage town, Batangas

When you visit the Heritage town of Taaal, you are sure to notice this old yet seemingly sturdy edifice just near the largest Catholic church in Asia, the St. Martin de Tours Cathedral.

Escuela Pia is a school supervised by the church and was named after the congregation established by San Jose of Calansanz, during the 17th century. Agustinian priests constructed this convent that which later became school for underpriveledged Taal youth.

The present edifice was built through the effort of P. Aniceto Aparicio in 1885. This Escuela Pia had become the central school during the American regime.

In addition, the restoration of Escuela Pia building, which is considered to be one of the oldest eductional institutions in the country, was initiated by Taal Arts and Culture Movement Inc. This is also in cooperation with National Historical Institute.

Escuela Pia is another national historical site that we Batangueno, specifically the Taalenos, should take care of for the upcoming generations.

    Hi Ms. Gerlie,
    A client of mine from Dubai wants to get married in Taal Basilica next year because that’s her dream church for her dream wedding. She is a native Taalena and so is her husband to be. They are dreaming of a simple and intimate reception at Escuela Pia. Would you happen to know the rate for weddings at Taal Basilica and the requirements? And would you know too if Escuela Pia is allowed to host wedding receptions? If it would take much of your time, could you please at least give me contact numbers for both? I would appreciate it so much because Taal is quite a distance from where I’m based so it would be great help. Thanks and God bless. I may be reached too at 09083157888 or 4737421.

    Sincerely,

    Anne Tiangco
