The Catholic Church in the Philippines

The French journal Le Monde published recently some of my photos about the Catholic Church in the Philippines.

Although during the Holy Week the catholic fervor is particularly evident, it is also very present during the whole year.

It is estimated that 80% of the Filipino population is Catholic, making it the third biggest Catholic community in the world. In the Philippines the Church is still extremely influential, not only in the day to day life of the Filipinos, but also at the political level.

Many more photos from the Catholic Church in the Philippines in my website.
