It is around 25 mins away from Virac, the city of Catanduanes. The outside structure is still preserved while the inside of the church is already renovation. The church is made of stone. It is a quite place to pray.

July 29, 2016. On our way to Puraran Beach, we visited one of the oldest church in Catanduanes. It is popularly known as Bato Church, but to the Iocals it is Saint John the Baptist Church.
The church on the mound is visible from the road way. It's old plastered stones was well preserved, likewise the overall shell structure of the church. I love the stained glass windows, the old cast iron grills, the pebbled walkways, and the old bass guitar I saw inside the church. There were however some notable improvements on the altar, ceiling, flooring and interior finishings.
Another feature that I like to mention was the beauty the way the big wooden church doors open to the surrounding garden and bending river infront. Simply nostalgic.

The Church had an old structure surrounded by a green grass field. We weren't really able to go inside the Church for the part was under construction when we visited. There was also a Requiem Mass being held inside, making us observe only the outer part of the place.
