These are to honor San Isidro Labrador, the patron saint of the farmers. They decorate their entire houses and cover it with vegetables, fruits and their original delicacy Kiping.

Kamay ni Hesus, a 5-hectare shrine, is one of the places to go to when you are in Lucban. As you climb at the top, you will pass by life-sized replicas of distinguished scenes in Holy Bible such as Adam and Eve, The Last Supper, Pieta, and among others.

St. Louis Bishop Parish


Never forget to drop by at San Luis Obispo de Tolosa Parish Church located in the town proper of Lucban. The church was built in 1593 and was rebuilt in 1629 after its first fall off. A fire caused its second deconstruction and was rebuilt from 1738 to 1743 to what it look like at present. The World War II partially damaged the church and was restored in 1966 by the Historical Commission.

You can also season it with vinegar for a better and flavorful taste. Lucban is where Buddy's Pancit Lucban originated. Now they have reached out to everyone and opened branches all over the Metro. They also serve the mouthwatering longganisang Lucban.
