Day 18 of PHL50 : Getting Around Lucena City

Here's what I did during the 18th day of PHL50 which includes itinerary, expenses and guide on how to get to the destinations/tourist attractions I have been to in Lucena.

Quezon Provincial Capitol
I left Daet early in the morning to embark on another long journey to the province of Quezon. It was basically around 6 hours bus ride from Daet to the city of Lucena.
An interesting church I have seen when I was on my way to Lucena
I have already booked my accommodation at the Quezon Premiere Hotel so I just had to find it. It was my first time in the Quezon province so I am pretty much oblivious of what is going on there. As per the google map I am looking at, the bus should stop near the hotel. I do not want to take chances so I asked the driver if he knew where it was. Good thing he knew where it was so he stopped in front of the hotel.

I checked in, rest a bit and started my tour around Lucena City.

I was initially planning of just visiting the Quezon Province Capitol but I passed by an interesting church so I alighted and checked the church. It was the Lucena Church. 




Afterwards, I asked around where is the capitol and the lady I asked pointed me to the direction. She said most of the jeepney which pass by in front of the church will also be going to the capitol so I took a jeep and after few minutes, I was already in the Quezon Province Capitol (also known as Tayabas Capitol)



The capitol looked really good. In fact, it is one of the best looking provincial capitols I have visited.
