  8. Been to Paete three times to buy wood carvings. It was the most memorable trip i’ve ever had! I took the bus from Buendia to Sta Cruz,Laguna then took the Siniloan,Pagsanjan,Paeta jeep and the scenic view while going up the mountain was so great! Paete people are so accomodating and warm! Had the chance to visit the very beautiful church too. There i was able to find and bought nice pieces of reasonably priced wood carvings done by the famous Paete carvers. I treasured these pieces and they are priceless for it’s artistic values.

  10. Sir, good morning. We need some help here. We need a statue of Saint Peter (4 feet), holding a book and a key. Wood carve. How much will it cost us? Or, can you refer us to somebody; to have a good price. I already get some quotations and the price is really high…

    Thank you very much.

  11. boss., magkano po ba magagastos namin pag sa paete kami kumuha ng poon..?
    salamat po..

    • I can’t give specifics, depende sa size and kung sino ang gagawa Francis. Mas expensive ang commission work ng isang master carver than doon sa isang carver na nag mamass produce ng craft.

  12. I heard the Spanish era Church in Paete is one of the most beautiful in the country

    • I believe so Marky. The church of Santiago Apostol in Paete has a ornate facade. Interior has several folk art including remarkable paintings by Jose Dans and exquisite carvings in the main altar and station of the cross.
