Paoay Church one of UNESCO's World Heritage

From the Malacañang, we visited the Paoay Church nearby and hope some picture-taking. Paoay Church is included in UNESCO World Heritage list. Construction of the church started from 1704 and finished in 1894 by the Augustinian friars led by Fr. Antonio Estavillo. It is probably the best-known “earthquake Baroque” church in the Philippines.








The bell tower that was built in 1793, served as an observation point of the “Katipuneros” during the Philippine Revolution in 1896 and again by the guerrillas during the Japanese occupation.
