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.

The church is just the same as it is. Nothing significant to be expected. But the pasalubongs are even cheaper than in calle crisologo or in the market. I suggest buying pasalubongs here if you can't visit the public market. The saleslady said they have...More

We were lucky enough to hear mass here on the Feast Day of the town's patron St. Paul. It is a good place to pause, pray, reflect and rest. It seems well maintained and a really old fine church.

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.

Having seen a few local churches in the province, this is the most spectacular so far. Very nice and well maintained inside as well as outside.
