World's Largest Shoes By Kharina Agabe


Immaculate Concepcion Church  By Kharina Agabe

Known as the second largest church in Marikina, the Immaculate Concepcion Church is located along Bayan-Bayanan Street in Concepcion. It is one of the most frequently visited church during mass because it is in the heart of Marikina - with several barangays and subdivisions surrounding it. Also, most jeeps and, sometimes, buses that travel along Marikina pass along this church.

World of Butterflies  By Sharmz De Castro

World of Butterfiles, one of the main attraction in Marikina City, the place is known because of the various types of butterflies that you could see there. Though butterflies could be seen rarely, there would be a season where the place is full of it, because  the caterpillars already went out from their cocoons and evolved into a butterfly. The place is really educational and it's really fun to visit the place. Also, World of Butterflies also allow people to rent the place for birthdays or marriage.

San Isidro Labrador Church  By Eunice Topacio

Located infront of Greenland Phase 1 Entrance Gate and near San Lorenzo Ruiz De Manila School, San Isidro Labrador Church is quite a wonderful one with its structure as well as its glass windows, reminding me of the Middle Ages.

This church is one of the most visited church during Visita de Iglesia during Maundy Thursday celebrated once a year, despite its seemingly isolated location.

But then, if you just look closer, San Isidro Labrador Church is just about a few steps away from where vehicles in Marikina ride across to.

Philippine International Footwear Center  By Pauline Dela Paz

Or also know as one of Otto Shoes' Store. One of the largest shoe factories in Marikina is Otto shoes which are found beside the Kapitan moy. They have nice and accommodating employees that will serve you as you go inside their store. Depicted in the picture is their current shoe supplies, in a shoe store where you can buy their quality products.

Philippine Science Centrum By Eunice Topacio

The first interactive science center-museum in the Philippines is located in Marikina. Where precisely? The Philippine Science Centrum is located in the E-Com. Building, Riverbanks Center in Barangka.

The Philippine Science Centrum aims on attracting more Filipino students in the world of Science by letting them experience exciting and interactive programs within the Centrum.

For example, the Wall of Illusion where in you can almost feel like as if your head is serve to your enemy in a silver platter. Hahahha... A funny scene if you ask me. And there's also the Frozen Shadow Exhibit where in you can capture your shadow on your best pose.

So, if you think Science is boring, here, you will learn that it's not what you think it is.
