Fascinating for the old architecture
Oct 2019
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.

Don't miss visiting here: pray fervently and take photos after

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.

Iconic Religious Place Up North
Dec 2017 • Family
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.

Unique church
May 2018 • Family
This is one of the oldest Churches in the Philippines and part of UNESCO World Heritage Site. It has survived a number of earthquakes through restorations. What is unique about this church is the massive buttresses it has. It has a bell tower adjacent to it. There are sampaguita plants around and smells good when walking around. If you like visiting historical sites then this is one for you.

A sight to behold!
Jun 2018 • Family
Also known as Paoay church, the St. Augustine Church was simply an amazing sight to behold.

I fell in love with the outer architecture.
It was a road trip well worth it. I'm so glad to have dragged my family here.
