This is the second time I visited this church and it never disappoints. When you see this church, you feel you've travelled in time during the Spanish Conquistadors. This is a UNESCO Heritage site - thankful that is it preserved.

This is a world UNESCO sight. The buttresses are enormous and the church feels very solid. The entrance is very impressive, and the interior is well maintained. I think it is witness to withstanding all the earthquakes that occur in the region.

Our first stop during our Ilocos Trip. We arrived in Paoay a bit early so we watched the sunrise first and have to wait a little more before the doors are open. St. Augustine Church or Paoay Church is a beautiful church indeed. Solemn and...More
