Underground Cemetery-Nagcarlan, Laguna, Philippines

Together with my hubby and friends from Texas

With Josie, my friend.

My sister in law is from Nagcarlan. So, when she got married to my brother last year, it so happened that the place is just 10 minutes away from where we were staying. We met our friends there, so we visited the place. No cameras are allowed inside too, so obviously no photos. The entrance is free but donations are encouraged to help maintain the place and the watcher I guess :).

The Underground Cemetery is considered to be a tourist attraction in Nagcarlan and is the only one of its kind in the Philippines. It used to be a burial ground for Spanish priests and other people which was built around 1845. Surrounding the chapel are 248 crypts while the underground has 36.
