Santo Domingo Things to Do: 4 reviews and 6 photos
The Parish Church of St. Dominic de Guzman is considered the most prominent landmark in the town of Sto. Domingo. The church was built in 1820 with impressive architectural details. Its massive solid stone walls are unsupported by pillars, and it has two dome-shaped belfries giving a symmetrical look to the church. In the olden times, cement was not yet used as construction material. Instead, a mixture of lime, egg albumin, and molasses served as binder and hardener for the massive stone walls of the Sto. Domingo church.
Address: Sto. Domingo, Albay
