Santa Maria Church, Ilocos Sur
Santa Maria Church or La Asuncion de la Ñuestra Señora Church is one of the 4 UNESCO World Heritage Sites Baroque Churches of the Philippines.
Its bell tower
Santa Maria Church was built in 1765 under Augustinian order. The bell tower was constructed a distance away from the main church to prevent possible main church damage from earthquakes.
Unfortunately, church is closed when we went there and we didn’t get to see the interiors.
