The Land Of Smiles Is Popular For Its Cheap Accommodations, Cheap Food For Batanes Tukon Chapel in Basco

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.

Batanes has dozens of churches scattered throughout its three inhabited islands. But one church that you shouldn’t miss when you go for a visit is Mt. Carmel Chapel, also known to locals as TUKON CHAPEL. It is dubbed as "The Church of Fulfilled Dreams". Local artisans built this small chapel on top of a hill, and the province’s traditional stone houses inspired its design. 

The chapel is ideal for couples who want a romantic and small marriage ceremony. Inside the chapel are paintings of saints done by local artists. Outside the chapel, you can see the crashing waves where the Pacific Ocean and the South China Sea converge. You can take a short walk from the chapel to the PAGASA Radar Station, also known as Tukon Radar Station. 

The church is a project of the Abad family for the communities nearby so they don't need to go to a farther church.
