Belgium Cafe

A photo shot stop at the Belgium Cafe besides the entrance of the station. I actually never new it was there. It is located in a previous 'shelter church' this is a Catholic Church without the external display that it actually is. For hundreds of years Catholics had to be it in secret. Now the church is turned in to a cafe.

The picture is taken from the place where the organ stands. Looks like a great Grand Cafe to taste one of their beers.

I really like it! It looks great and the history of this place is also very interesting and unusual.

This is the second time this week I've seen an old church turned into something else. I find it so weird, and most Catholics in the Philippines would go into conniptions if that happened here. I like it though. Hey, better than their being demolished or abandoned to rot. The architecture's too beautiful for that!

Interesting . . . do we dare say a trend? I, too, am glad the architecture has been preserved.
