The place is in Bato, about 10kms from Virac...The place is serene and beautiful. Along a river, and mountains/hills on the other side. Very good for photo-ops.

Located about 13 kms North-East of the town of Virac, this gem of an old church is definitely a stand-out among the many other old stone churches of the island province. The church opens up to the equally gorgeous Bato River. My visit to this...More

From town to Bato Church is P10.00/each for a group and P50.00 for a special trip. What I enjoyed the most is the view of the beach going to Bato Church. The church itself is not something I'm interested in. The paintings on the ceiling....More
