A must visit in Ilocos - truly a historic place that gives you a flavor of Paoay and that solemn feels! It’s beautiful as well during the night when the lights are on.

First this place is well maintained and not so crowded, after tacking pictures you may relax and approach the stores for local products. Chat with the locals ask about the late Marcoses and learn from them. Parking is easy and toilet is available.

In my opinion the most spectacular baroque church of Luzon. The massive mounts to protect the construction from earthquakes are impressive. In front of the church there is a nice park, good for fotos of church and tower.
