Prepare for sumptuous treats as you spend the whole day exploring the famous Kapampangan cuisine and its rich cultural heritage.
Discover two of the heritage churches of Pampanga. The Betis Church, a baroque inspired church that is declared as National Cultural Treasure for its impressive paintings on the ceiling, similar to the rendition of Renaissance painters. Built in 1576, a visit to San Guillermo Church will be a fascinating experience where you will enter a half buried church due to the Mt. Pinatubo eruption in 1991. The sunken church has also become popular as it was used as a set location for the famous local TV program of ABS-CBN’s “May Bukas Pa”.
Have a Factory Tour of Betis Crafts, the biggest exporter of “And So To Bed” in London where 90% of their furniture comes from this artistic side of town. These are the beds preferred by the Beatles, Boy George and other celebrities. Guess what? They are the same bed maker of the luxurious Abu Dhabi hotel room in the movie, “Sex and the City!”
Unwind for lunch as you savor an authentic local cuisine right at Abe’s Farm, a rustic Filipino house made of indigenous materials nestled at the foot of Mt. Arayat. Visit the Center for Kapampangan Studies, a remarkable museum that provides the rich history of Pampanga.
Delight in a unique “pasalubong” of Pampanga delicacies right at Susie’s Cuisine.
