San Antonio De Padua Church | In and Around Tagaytay

Quick note: San Antonio de Padua Church is located in Silang, Cavite. Silang is a town just outside Tagaytay City. This was an article I wrote for the wedding resource website Country Weddings Philippines, on the subject matter of churches in and around Tagaytay.

Among the Catholic churches in Cavite, particularly near or around Tagaytay City, that have become popular wedding venues, one up-and-rising star is the quaint “little” church of San Antonio de Padua Quasi-Parish in Barangay Pooc, Silang.

San Antonio ng Padua Church, San Antonio de Padua Church

St. Anthony of Padua, also known as Anthony of Lisbon, was a Portuguese Catholic priest and St. Francis of Assisi’s most celebrated follower. He was canonized barely a year after his death at the age of 35. He is famously known as the patron of lost articles, with his feast day celebrated on June 13. He is often featured with the Christ Child as it is said that this is how Jesus appeared to him.

To get there, one has to take note of the road sign going to Silang, about a couple of kilometers past the Philippine National Police Academy (if coming from the direction of Manila) along Sta. Rosa-Tagaytay road.

    Such a beautiful church for a wedding :) Would you happen to have their email address?

    • Renzie says:

      Hello May!

      Thanks for stopping by! The only contact number we have of San Antonio de Padua is their phone number– (+63 46) 414.1891. Not so sure if they have an email address, but let me give them a call tomorrow morning to check if they have one.

    Hi do you know a nice hotel near san antonio de padua where we could do our wedding preps?

    • Renzie says:

      Hello Angela!

      Thanks for stopping by!

      Well you have a couple of options: you may consider going towards the side of Sta. Rosa/Nuvali, or the side going towards Tagaytay.

      Going towards Sta. Rosa/Nuvali, Seda is probably the best option for a hotel. Going towards Tagaytay, you definitely have a lot more options, particularly along Tagaytay-Sta. Rosa Road. During our wedding preps, we booked a 5-bedroom house at Balai Taal so the whole family can be there, and it also served as our command center for the day, with all the wedding suppliers, etc.

      Other than Balai Taal, other hotels such as View Park Hotel, Hotel Kimberly, Nurture Wellness Village, Hotel Dominique, Daj Suites, Keni-Po Suites, etc. have packages or options for families, or larger groups (if, say, you’d want to have your bridesmaids/groomsmen stay with you guys for the weekend or something).

      The closest to San Antonio de Padua is The Hills at Silang. While they do have a number of houses large enough for an extended entourage, you might want to give them a call regarding availability.

      Hope that helps!

    Hi! I have been reading the earlier messages and saw that you we’re going to check if they have an email address. Did you happen to get the information? Thank you so much and happy new year!!!

    • Renzie says:

      Hello Jennie!

      It seems the best way to get in touch with them is via the phone number provided, or you can ask your wedding planner to stop by for you. (Medyo old-timey pa ang office, so I don’t think they’re big on email or social media– I do hope that would change soon though!)

      Hope that helps!

    Hi Renzie,

    Good Day!

    I’ll be attending a wedding at San Antonio de Padua Church and you’ve suggested a place like Keni Po Suites. Just a quick question how far is it from the church to keni po? How many minutes would it take for me to travel? If i take a taxi approx how much would be the cost?

    Thank a lot

    Monette

    • Renzie says:

      Hello Monette.

      Keni Po is in Tagaytay City. By car, you can get there from San Antonio de Padua in 30 minutes (45 siguro in heavy weekend traffic). No cabs operating in Silang or Tagaytay City though. If you’re travelling with friends/family, you guys might be better off chipping in for a vehicle rental you can use while you’re in town.

      Hope that helps!

  6. Rona says:

    Hi can you recommend / suggest a wedding reception venue near the church?

    • Hello Rona!

      Off the top of my head, you have The Hills in Silang (which is the closest), Angelfields Nature Sanctuary along Tagaytay-Sta. Rosa Road (possibly the most popular among the options here), and Alta Veranda de Tibig. Other nearby venues worth considering: The Monochrome in Nuvali and Teofely Gardens.

      I’m sure there are others in that general area of Silang/Tagaytay-Sta. Rosa Road, so you might want to consult with your wedding planner for that.

      Hope that helps!

      Thanks for stopping by!
