Candido Gonzales built a temporary church and convento of wood, bricks and tabique pampango. The present church was constructed from 1870-74.

Two engaged columns supporting a triangular pediment bear the date 1970, apparently recent additions.Don’t leave yet. There’s more!Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
