Let's set aside the history behind this great building...the mere thought of standing in front of this very old church will transport you in time...I can't help but imagine the things that happened here long ago. Isn't it enchanting? Try it at night and you will double the worth.

Must place to visit when in Laoag. This is a heritage site. This church was built for a long time and still it stood.

Not sure if they are in the process of restoring this or are just leaving it as is... The original roof is gone from either storms or erosion.

A huge stone church. Mesmerized with its simple yet sophisticated architecture. You will appreciate its Spanish embellishments. Such a lovely historic destination to visit.

I love that it's very old. Baroque style. Before walking in, take plenty of photos already when there's not much or no people in front of it. It's majestic. Going inside is another story, the floor tile is nice. The altar is simple but beautiful. Pray first before taking photo. I exited on the side of the church. Upon exiting,... More

One of the best thing to discover when travelling is the history and architecture of the region. This church serves the memory of what happened in the past and still remain to see the future.
