Must visit for every tourist who are planning to go to Naga City. Me and my family never fails to visit our own "INA" in her house here in Basilica of Our Lady of Penafrancia. You will feel very close to her while you're still inside the Basilica.

During are most recent Christmas vacation we stopped by to visit and pray at the Basilica of Our Lady of Penafrancia. As you enter the church you can see the statue of the Blessed Virgin and all the lovely stained glass images that surrounds the church with their beautiful art. This wondrous setting makes it ideal for personal reflection and... More

Large, beautiful Catholic Basilica. Amazing stained glass windows. Blessed Sacrament Room. Access to image of Our Lady of Penafrancia. Not sure if the image is a replica of the original since there is another one at the Penafracia Church and Shrine.

Am not a catholic but I appreciate the structure and design of this Basilica. They say you didn't go to Naga if you haven't visited this place. Its true, we just went here for a few minutes as its raining when we got here but we appreciate the place. A must see when going to or passing by Naga

My friends went inside the church to attend a mass. Me and two other friends stayed outside and waited for them. Even if you are not of Catholic faith, there are benches where you can stay outside and take pictures. Ladies, there are 'amor secos' on the grass ground in front of the Basilica so avoid wearing very long dress... More

We yearly celebrate the feast of La Virgen Penafrancia every 3rd week of September. This is the new Basilica wherein you can visit the image of Ina. During Her feastday its better if you hear mass around 4-6am because its a little colder there a number of devotees but there are chances that you will have a seat unlike if... More
