Destination & Festivity in Manapla

Chapel of Cartwheels

The small, hidden Municipality of Manapla in the province of Negros Occidental isn’t just the home of the most delicious puto (rice cake) in the province; this small town has another thing to be proud of. In hacienda Rosalia, there’s a spot that made people visit this small town.

The Chapel of Cartwheels is an evidence of how devoted the Negrenses are. Unlike most of the churches constructed in the past which were Spanish-inspired, this resembled the true Filipino culture. It was built during the 1960s in a farm owned by the prominent Gaston family.

The creativity and resourcefulness can be perceived as the small church was built out of the equipment available at the farm. According to Msgr. Guillermo Gaston, the reason why he opted to use cartwheels in constructing the chapel is that for people to relate to it even more. He believes that if he uses materials from the farm, the simplicity of the constructed chapel will make the visit our website simple people of the hacienda relate to it easily.

It is just a small chapel, with a long cone-like roof made from wood which epitomizes the Filipino old-fashioned hat or the “salakot”. Most of the walls were made out of connected cartwheels, which provided more ventilation, while the wall of the altar was made from sturdy bricks.

Because of the chapel’s unique structure and the extraordinary materials used in building it, there’s no doubt that it could attract tourist who are mostly intrigued by how it was made. The mortar was used as the container for the Holy Water while the pestles were utilized as a stand for the candles. Slabs of wood were used as benches for the people who will come and listen to the mass every Sunday. The church was built simply to bring the people nearer to the Almighty. Image of the saint was being drawn and trimmed out from wood. Old blocks of stone were being used at the altar for the priest and the sacristans. Different pieces of broken glass from colored bottles creatively adorned the three cartwheels at the wall of the altar, similar to the stained glass. The colorful pigments made the chapel appear more vibrant. These three cartwheels can be seen at the center of the altar, which represents God the Father, The Son and the Holy Spirit. They have a crucifix suspended at the center, but instead of using a cross, they ideally put the figure in a cartwheel.
