Philippines Culture

The Philippines is the only predominantly Catholic country in Southeast Asia. A melting pot of western and eastern cultures, Filipino culture is a blend of traditional Filipino and Spanish Catholic traditions, with influences from America and other parts of Asia.

Spanish heritage can be seen across the Philippines, most prominently in Baroque churches, Manila’s Intramuros, and places like Taal and Vigan.
