Holy Week while on quarantine: Go on a virtual Visita Iglesia

Just because we are on lockdown doesn't mean Catholics won't be able to practice Holy Week traditions. You can build your home altar, attend Holy Week events with Pope Francis online, and even go on a virtual Visita Iglesia, thanks to Google Map's street view.

Anyone with the internet can virtually visit the churches from the safety of their own homes. Just visit Google Maps on the web, type in a destination, perhaps a church you'd like to visit, and then view a specific area by dragging the Pegman located at the bottom right of your screen.

Meanwhile, if you're using mobile you can type in your destination and tap on a place marker.

Here are some church suggestions from Google.

For your convenience, below are the actual links to the churches on Google Maps! Simply click on church's name and it will lead you there. 

1. San Agustin Church, Intramuros 

2. Our Lady of the Abandoned Parish, Sta. Ana, Manila
