    Visita Iglesia Filipina

    Of the days of the Holy Week, Maundy Thursday is typically the day for Catholics to do some church visits called Visita Iglesia. This tradition has its ancient roots when Holy Thursday was set for some visit to sacred sites associated with the passion and death of Christ in Jerusalem. The practice was replicated in ancient Rome with visits to seven of the earliest basilicas as symbolic of the holy places in the Holy Land.
