After a staying in one of the most beautiful island i've been, Paguriran Island and singalong with a videoke for few hours, and a stopover to Bacon District Parish Church. Our group is now heading to another town. The town of Irosin, Sorsogon, of course once again with the help of our trike mobile.....

Going back to Sorsogon City
After almost an hour, we were back at Sorsogon City. It was around 330 in the afternoon, we had refreshment courtesy of Aling Susan's Halo-Halo @ Calle Nueva St., Sorsogon City. That break was really helpful...hehehe....ang sarap ng is just for P20, it has a complete ingredients of an halo-halo, aside from that it has a toppings of ube, langka, leche plan and ice!!!!
Xplorerboyz in eating....hehehehe
After having that break, we proceed to our destination because it is getting late afternoon. We arrive in the City town proper of Irosin passed 5 in the afternoon. This town is our 2nd stop of day 2 of different adventure, our plan is to go first at St. Michael the Archangel Parish Church also known as the Hilltop Church and stay for the rest of the night in Mateo Hotspring Resort. we wer in a bit hurry to get in the church to have some nice shot of it, and luckily we captured some it.
Irosin Town Landmark
Touring our country will always include the visitation to different Churches. Seeing it historical facades, the ruins of our past and present. One will see how Christianity influence the lives of the filipinos. Even the smallest communities do have their own chapels.

St. Michael the Archangel Parish Church, Irosin, Sorsogon
Situated in a top of the Hill of Poblacion, Irosin, Sorsogon is the St. Michael the Archangel Parish Church. Churchgoers of this church have to climb the 100 steps to workship in this breezy, scenic and spacious church. This church is can be reach in two ways. Aside from using the 100 steps of stairs, the other one is an asphalt road for vehicles, or you could walk in too. When we arrive at this church, the mass started, so we were contented to take some pictures far away to pay respect to the church mass. Below are some the pictures weve taken while we were in the church.

This Church has another smaller hill, located on the asphalt road way, called as the Little Baguio, where  the Grotto of Virgin Mary is located. From this part also you can have the clearer view of Mt. Bulusan Volcano and affording churchgoers and visitors a panoramic view of the town and the surrounding countryside beyond but sad to say when we got on that place it is getting darker.

It was almost 6pm when we departed Irosin's Hilltop Church, it was once again a nice experience seeing one of the tourist spots and among the best picturesque church in Sorsogon. Watch out for my next entry with regards to Mateo Hotspring Resort, also situated here at Irosin, Sorsogon.
come on...let's go...picture time !!!!!
