If you are not a Catholic, you might get overwhelmed if you go to this place during holy week. Not because its crowded, but because its dark and eery inside. The statues are covered in black fabric.

A modern church with live TV forecast of the mass. A small church that but it has a lot of mass schedule during Sundays. Nothing much to see externally but you can go here to worship.

In the same precinct as the Presidents house and museum in the middle of town. A site of a siege in their battle for independence. Free entry.

It is relatively near. Costa Pacifica is on the beach front while the Baler chruch is located in the city center. You could take a tricycle ride which will cost around 10-15 pesos per person or have a 15 minute short walk.
