VISITA IGLESIA. One enduring religious tradition among Filipinos is to perform the Visita Iglesia during Holy Thursday of Lent. Ilocos Sur is one of the favorite locations for this practice because of the presence of many historical Spanish colonial churches, many of them situated along the national highway. Rose Espejo, Dr. Daisy Torina and Monique Torina were among the many devout Catholics who visited the churches last Holy Thursday to follow the Stations of the Cross and pray.
