“A fruit of Polo Y servicio”

Bato Church
Reviewed 8 February 2018

The fruit of labor of the viracnons. It is a good church and it shows antiquity. A must see when you go to Catanduanes.

This church commands attention from a distance. The old architecture gives you the feeling of time travel from the past. With the view of the nearby river with the winding bridge will remind you that simple happiness residing in the province. It will wash your worries away.

Ever since I was a kid, it already stood as high and beautiful as it is today. Despite the hundreds of typhoons that hit this place, it still stands strong and ever more beautiful. Say a prayer at this church or just admire its beauty.

Bato Church is one of the rare churches in the Philippines (except perhaps in Bohol) where the materials used are corals and clay. These combination of materials has provided these churches to withstand big earthquakes and have lasted hyndreds of years. The location too is very beautiful as it sits right beside Virac River which is by itself very grand. Wish we had experienced attending mass there during our visit.

Good example of Spanish architecture. It was a shame about the litter scattered all over the grounds though. We were unable to go inside the church as it was locked
