On our way to Lucban Quezon, we took a side trip to a town called Pila in Laguna. Driving around Pila was a time warp back into the Spanish era. It was a surprise to see the architecture of old and well preserved colonial houses surrounding the town square. The restored Filipino heritage houses were lined around the plaza and at the center still stood the historic 16th century baroque church. We had breakfast at the little food stall across the museum. A nice bowl of traditional rice porridge called “arroz caldo” with hard boiled egg and tokwa (fried tofu) was a great way to start the day!
Congratulations to the Pila conservation society!http://historyofpila.bayangpinagpala.org/2005/09/glorious-past_13.html?m=0
