While there is nothing much to do here, attraction and entertainment wise, then the St. Augustine's Church is well worth a visit because of its history and because it is one the heritage list. This piece of architectural mastery is beautiful, eventhough it is weatherworn and showing the signs of age. If you are in Ilocos Norte, then make sure... More

We booked our hotel in Vigan, Ilocos Sur. Going to Ilocos Norte is one of our itinerary. We left Vigan 6:00 in the morning. After an hour drive, we arrived in Paoay.

Make sure to go around the church to see the entire architechtural design. This is probably one of the most unique church I've visited in the Philippines in terms of architechtural design. Definitely must visit!

I encountered a wedding ceremony at Paoay San augustin church in late afternoon. enjoyed seeing local people celebrating with big family. The church is closed during the ceremony and impossible to go inside for 1-2 hours...be careful (They kindly invited me to join the ceremony inside). You can enjoy the beautiful garden around the heritage instead. To visit here from... More

Always a treat to see old churches. This is no exception. A flea market was set up next to the church, while restaurants are aplenty nearby.
