Our Lady of Peñafrancia is the Patroness of the entire Bicol Region. Her image used to be housed in a small chapel. Because of the growing number of devotees, the Our Lady of Peñafrancia Minor Basilica was built. It is considered as the largest Marian pilgrimage in Asia. The basilica is located in the the outskirts of Naga City.
Naga City is also known as the Heart of Bicol due to its central location in the Bicol Peninsula. The presence of the Our Lady of Peñafrancia also makes Naga the religious center of Bicol.Tags: basilica, Bicol, Camarines Sur, church, Naga, Our Lady of Peñafrancia Minor Basilica
