Paoay Church is one of the oldest Church in the Philippines, it symbolizes how majestic Christians were and how good structures were built before.

Don't you just love old churches? It's the nostalgic architecture that the early colonizers left in the Philippines...at least they did one good thing.

Romantic, spiritual, historical all wrapped in one. When I went I pretty much had the place to myself, which added to the spiritual vibe that I experienced.

Light a candle, say a prayer, and let your prayers be fulfilled.

Imposing façade (huge buttresses) of this Augustinian church, the inside though is not as impressive as other churches running up and down the region. Another church which has a detached belfry. The exterior has been rehabilitated, much brighter now than before. They have light shows at the Paoay sign up front this season. #OSA #RP

The St. Augustine's church is a sign of stronghold, its been standing there for a lot of years now and we were so happy to witness the beautiful church.

Definitely worth a stop to explore the old Baroque church for its unique design. Much of the church and the bell tower beside it are under construction/renovation but one can still appreciate the details. Nice gardens beside the church (in desperate need of repair).

Parking available for free in the area with a great local restaurant directly in front of the church.

An Amazing Church
Built in the 1500's and still standing after all the Earthquakes and Typhoons over the years...
Really Beautiful inside.
It is a Must See when visiting the North Ilocos Region of the Philippines.
Also has a Bell Tower that was used by Philippine Watchers to warn the Villager's that the Japanese was coming.

I am interested to visit churches in Ilocos, for these are way humongous! I appreciate that some (?) of the churches here are Augustinian, and this is one of the Augustinian churches in the Northern region in the Philippines.

This church is part of our tour in Ilocos way back 2013. It is a must visit destination and it is just near the Sand Dunes. We would have appreciated the church's solemnity more if it wasn't full of tourist. So I'd suggest you come during off peak season. Avoid tourist surges during Holy Week to fully appreciate the beauty of this place.

It’s a dream come true for me to be in this magnificent church. We came there early in the morning and the place was very serene. Love the old structure. Take more pictures.
