Beautiful Church
Dec 2019
Visiting churches gives me a very calming feeling and this church just gave me that once again. The exterior gives you a feeling of strength since the church has already weathered a lot of storms and the inside is so serene and calm. The church has simple and yet so beautiful interiors.

but uninspiring compared to larger, more famous churches. I photographed from our van while my wife walked through in less than 3 minutes--a record for her.

The first church we visited on tour and one of my favourites. Loved the huge fans for the congregation as well.

Prayer for the storm
Sep 2018 • Solo
Another choice of destination when you are stranded in Batanes due to travel cancellation. A short prayer in this very quiet church is truly felt as solemn. Not that grand compared to other old churches but it is a marvel.

Structural Beauty!
May 2018 • Family
Probably the best looking church we've seen in Batanes. Very clean, shiny floors and walls, and nice surrounding. Located in the heart of Basco town proper. Very good architectural design and looks newly painted when we got there last May 21, 2018.

Oldest church in Batanes
Feb 2018 • Couples
We visited St Dominic de Guzman Cathedral which is painted in a Golden Yellow and designed in the Baroque style of architecture.

This church was originally dedicated to Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception.

Our Lady is the patroness of Batanes.

The church has undergone several renovations as a result of natural disasters. The weather conditions can be very harsh in Batanes hence stone house were popular.

This church was burned and reconstructed around 1860, and refurbished in 1950. An earthquake in 2000 again damaged the church but it was rebuilt in 2011.

Worth visiting during the North Batan Tour.

Old church
Apr 2017 • Couples
An old church preserve in time. A must visit when travelling in Batanes. The design of the church is awesome but simple.

It's so relaxing here. Just to pray by yourself, or attend mass. It's simple, but still find peace, and let all your worries go away.
