La Casa de Dios


This first publication of the Ortigas Foundation contains current photographs of Filipino-Hispanic churches, convents and ruins, as well as vintage photos and maps. A lively text recounts how European culture was transported in the 16th century by an expanding Spanish empire. Along with Christianity, the Spanish brought modern city planning and construction with stone. Today's Philippine church and society reflect many imported traditions which, over the centuries, blended with indigenous Filipino culture and many imported Asian influences as well.

Photos from this book were featured in the "Lasting Links with Spain" Churches exhibit at Casa de America in Madrid, Spain from Nov. 28, 2014 to Jan. 31, 2015. Its exhibit catalogue is also for sale at only P150.00.
