Here Some Other Reasons To Visit Batanes Sta. Rosa de Lima Chapel in Chavayan That'll Make It Jump To #1

Batanes is an archipelagic province in the Philippines situated in the Cagayan Valley region. It is the northernmost province in the country, and also the smallest, both in population and land area

Batanes has become one of the fastest growing tourist destinations in the country. The relatively isolated islands of the Batanes, the home of the resilient and welcoming Ivatans, with its rolling hills, subtropical climate, ancient cultures, good food, windswept traditional stone houses, and breathtaking landscapes and seascapes which perhaps make it one of the prettiest corners of the world. Its refreshingly chill vibe is unique from the other famous island destinations in the country. Whether it'll be your first time to see the country's northernmost province or you're planning to come back to rediscover the place, Batanes has plenty of spots that are worth your time.

A perfect example of the traditional Ivatan architecture is the STA. ROSA DE LIMA CHAPEL also known as Chavayan Chapel. It is located on Sabtang Island in Chavayan Village where the unique stone house village is located. STA. ROSA DE LIMA CHAPEL is the only remaining church in Batanes still roofed with cogon grass. 

A product of the early Ivatans’ bayanihan or 'yaru', this beautiful chapel took almost eight years to construct —starting in 1951 and finally opening its doors in 1959.
