Philippine cards

Thanks to my unwanted cards i've received these 2 from the Philippines sent by Mary Anne "presea".

"El Nido is a first class municipality and managed resource protected area in the province of Palawan in the Philippines.
It is composed of 45 islands and islets, each has its own unique geological formations.
From the towering marble cliffs and enchanting lagoons to its 100 white sandy beaches and lush jungle, El Nido is one of the top tourist destinations in Palawan, which is often referred to as the Philippines' Last Frontier. In the November-December 2007 issue of the National Geographic Traveler's magazine, Palawan was chosen as one of the best travel destinations in the world, and particularly, it recommended El Nido and the Calamianes Inlands." - in: wikipedia

"Basilica de San Martin de Tours in Taal is the largest church in Asia, standing 96 meters long and 45 meters wide. The Augustinian Missionaries started construction in 1756, but it was destroyed when Taal Volcano erupted in 1754. Today only the ruins of the walls of the original church is now left standing. It took a century for the church to achieve its present form." - in: wikipédia
