12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Simala Church

As I entered the sanctuary I was greeted by the massiveness of the church. This is one of the most sacred places for Catholic pilgrims in Cebu, Philippines. It is said that this place grants the prayers of the people and helps them be closer to Mother Mary.
