This is a church. And this is a cave. It’s a church in a cave. Callao Cave is a seven-chamber cave that forms part of the 300 caves that dot this protected area. It is found in the town of Peñablanca, province of Cagayan, although it is often associated with the nearby city of Tuguegarao. Still, of all the wonderful tidbits about this cave network, historical or otherwise, the one trivia that leaped from this photo is the fact that a wedding scene in the movie The Mistress was shot in Callao Cave. And why do we know that? We hate to admit this, but we watched the movie. And why did we watch the movie? Because we’re fans of John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo. Cheesy, yes, but we really don’t care. This photo by Justin Liu (check his Instagram acount, @justflying1112) is obviously shot with natural light. Callao Cave seems to be more gorgeous when it is draped by warm lights.
