Before heading out the town and on our way to Ilocos Sur, we stopped and tour this cathedral. Walked around the property and gave respect. Not a bad place to visit because of history of the place itself, also this is the gateway to Norte...More

This is a nice stop if you are in the area anyway. If you go during a Mass, you will be amazed at the numbers in attendance. Services here are well attaneded.

while it's true that all old churches (built during the Spanish era) look alike (same façade, same lay out), I really enjoy visiting churches -- to appreciate the structure, to say my prayers, to offer a candle for my intentions, and to listen to history.

St. Augustine Church or "Apo Caridad", as the townspeople fondly call the Nuestra Senora de Caridad in their Ilokano dialect, is one of the oldest structures in Ilocos Sur. The blue and white structure (symbolizing the colors of the Virgin Mary) and her big statue...More

Make sure to spend some time to visit the church before heading to the Bell Tower. Keep your phone away and just contemplate.

The church is nice and worth a visit for the beautiful bell tower. It is very large but quiet and it is in good condition.
