Ilocos Region Part 3 – Churches, Altars and Belfry

Ilocos Region Part 3 - Churches, Altars and Belfry

This is a Philippine Northern Churches adventure and looking for the best church architecture in the Philippines.

My vote on the most attractive church, altar and belfry goes to Sta. Monica Church in Sarrat, Ilocos Norte. The Paoay is differently amazing having its beautiful and wider facade for photography.
