I always have this fascination for church structures, the older and bigger, the more interesting. They are such imposing landmarks with their towering belfries, ornate decors and massive interiors, fulfilling their roles as venerable venues for the faithful, and solemn sanctuaries for the Lord’s flock. The Philippines is a showcase of ancient churches, cathedrals and basilicas. As the only predominantly Catholic country in Asia, churches big and small, old and new abound all over the Philippines. One of the well known relic religious structures is the Miag-ao Church in the province of Iloilo. Built in 1786 by Spanish Augustinian missionaries, it is one of four Baroque-inspired churches in the Philippines that is included in the UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
