Weekend Snapshot: Tayabas plaza

Snapshots of a small plaza in front of the Tayabas basilica. I was particularly attracted to these weather-beaten posts---charming in its rustic tranquility. It looks like they've been in this plaza for a long, long time and are probably as old as the basilica which was concreted in the 1600's. They stand here as mute witnesses to the ups and downs of this town.

Friends from Tayabas told me that this park is not the town plaza, and used mainly during Holy Week and other religious activities. With its well-maintained garden and cool breezes, no wonder town folks find this park an idyllic spot to spend a lazy afternoon in.

The plaza does look so serene and the garden does look so well maintained. Amazing that those posts and walls have been around for centuries.

Looks like a nice place place to chill and spend the afternoon.

I was in Quezon a couple of weeks ago. Just not sure if I passed Tayabas.

ganda talaga pag napepreserve ang mga ganyan. mas maganda kasing tingnan yung mga lumang pader lalo na pag maayos ang lugar.
