Paoay Church: A UNESCO World Heritage Site

The Church of Saint Augustine, commonly known as the Paoay Church, is the Roman Catholic parish church of the municipality of Paoay, Ilocos Norte. Completed in 1710, the church is famous for its distinct architecture highlighted by the enormous buttresses on the sides and back of the building.


In 1993, the church was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site as one best examples of the Baroque Churches of the Philippines.

There is a Garden of Prayer at the right side ot the church.

After saying our prayers and lighted our candles, we left the site and went to the town of Batac for our next stop.
