Another UNESCO Baroque church

The municipality of Sta. Maria in Ilocos Sur is a simple town with not much to see but has a real treasure one shouldn't miss. It's baroque church, the Nuestra Señora de la Asuncion Church . The last one of the 4 UNESCO baroque churches of the Philippines I ever visited.

This was a very quick trip. I accompanied my mom to her check-up in Sn Fernando La Union and after that I persuaded her to see the s very old baroque church I wanted to see before leaving the country. It's a long journey of 3 hours from San Fernando La Union we thought it's only 1 and a half hour away base on our source but it worth the travel.

I will tell you more about the church on my tip. Now I know why it’s one among the 4 UNESCO listed baroque churches of the Philippines

    This is nice that you visited Sta. Maria church. Sometimes, I come here to attend mass. I have an office at the market. It is one of my 24 offices in Ilocos Sur!
