Cavite and Tagaytay Trip - November 02, 2004

Bamboo Organ - Las Pinas:

Our first stop:

The Las Piñas Bamboo Organ is one of the Philippines' national treasures. It's home is the Parish Church of St Joseph located in Las Piñas City. The organ, the church and the surrounding buildings have been restored to their 19th century state by Architect Francisco "Bobby" Mañosa and associate Ludwig Alvarez, making a trip to the site a popular excursion for Filipinos and foreign visitors alike.

The bamboo organ has been restored several times. Due to it's oldness, many ways habe been done to save the organ. The organ has been under repair when we had our tour. How I wished I could have heard its music, but I guess it was not our luck that day :(
