If you are a fan of gothic architecture, this is the place for your. The San Sebastian Church is listed as one of the Philippine National Cultural Treasures. This church is the only all steel church in Asia and is one of the most preferred wedding destinations. Another must see in this church is the centuries old ivory image of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel enthroned in the centre altar.

I grew up in this church! I studied in Baste from grade school up to college. There was not a day in a week that i did not have the chance to visit this church.

It reminds me of the past, historically.Many of my friends have tied the knot in the Grand San Sebastian church.It was built in a era when we as Filipinos were under the Spanish rule.The place feels the grandeur of those times.It is a museum and yet masses are still heard there every single day.

Other than a visit,mass is very lively and participating.a place for the right offering,very spacy,crowded when wd occassion like Easter,but community people are discipline And generally a place to go to celebrate mass and solemn worship During summer.

The reasons I visited this church because of the weddings. I love the architecture
very Baroque and Spanish. The aisle was long and perfect for wedding ceremonies. The church was serene and perfect for praying..
