Also known as Paoay church, the St. Augustine Church was simply an amazing sight to behold. I fell in love with the outer architecture. It was a road trip well worth it. I'm so glad to have dragged my family here.

Talk to me about the old time. This church will definitely take you back in the old times. The ambiance is magnificent, the wind is cold, the garden outside the church won't disappoint, don't forget to take a photo and post in your instagram.

One of the oldest church here at home and few remaining earthquake baroque architecture. The facade is magnificent and imposing. It stood the test of time. The best time to visit is on breaking dawn until early morning to avoid summer heat.

This is the second time I visited this church and it never disappoints. When you see this church, you feel you've travelled in time during the Spanish Conquistadors. This is a UNESCO Heritage site - thankful that is it preserved.

You must visit this attraction if you are in the area. This is a UNESCO Heritage Site. There is plenty of parking on the side roads.

From the outside, the church was really huge. The quality of the church was really maintained. It was even nice at night.
