  1. You forgot the Archdiocesan shrine of St. Joseph in San Jose, Batangas (located between lipa & batangas city). It is one of the oldest churches in Batangas. It also has a spacious & beautiful prayer garden with life-size stations of the cross. Right beside is the Malaking Tubig ilog where u can have a picnic lunch
