Pope John Paul II Tower

Pope John Paul Tower

I wanted to take some new pictures of Bacolod this weekend. I had a general idea of where I wanted to go and what I wanted to portray. While I'm not Catholic, I couldn't help but appreciate the lovely Pope John Paul II Tower that was recently built by Simplicio Palanca as a gift of love to the Roman Catholic Church. On this exact same spot, the pope gave a speech to thousands of Negrenses on Feb 20, 1981.
