The biggest Catholic Church I've seen yet. It's colossal size must had made me felt in awe with the place. Not to mention that the front garden is well-maintained giving visitors a spectacular view.

This is one of the must see places if you're a history afficionado. Sad though that the interior really needs to be better maintained.

It's beautiful on the outside and important part of the Philippines history. There's not much to see inside.

This was a beautiful part of our first visit ever to the Philippines. The architecture, the history and the preservation of this old church is a marvel. This is world heritage site and rightly so. Worth the visit if your are in the Philippines!

If you're going to Ilocos make sure to visit this Baroque church. It is also declared as one of UNESCO's World Heritage Sites as well. You can also buy souvenirs near the premises and have meals at the nearby Cafe Herencia.

this being a world heritage site, i was expecting it to be quite an extraordinary structure and it lived up to my expectations. the architecture is beautiful with the church well-preserved and in good condition. it was not as austentatious-looking as the vigan cathedral in vigan, ilocos sur which looks like it just received a fresh coat of paint but...

I've seen the church many times now and still amazed by its architecture. It's just so uniquely done and still standing strong. I hope that years from now, people will still see this beautiful church and may the government continue its preservation..
