This old church in Paoay is one of the most beautiful churches I have ever seen. The buttresses are impressive and it looks like it was carved in stone. Its earthquake-proof baroque style architecture is a unique specimen of Filipino architecture from the Spanish era. The parish was founded by the Augustinians in 1593, cornerstone of the church laid in 1704. I took these photos in 2010. This church is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
