Inspirock Rating:
4.6/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web
Listed as a World Heritage Site, St Augustine's Church is famous for its architectural design that combines Baroque and Gothic elements. The most notable features of this 18th-century edifice remain its massive buttresses that support the structure on three sides, securing it from frequent earthquakes and typhoons. A stone bell tower on the building's right side served as a viewing deck during Philippine revolution and in World War II. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to St Augustine's Church and many more Paoay attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Paoay vacation route planner.
