Where To Go In Ilocos Norte: Paoay Church

Published on September 13, 2012

The best part about traveling is being able to see places that you only used to see in travel shows and pictures. I’ve seen Paoay Church countless of times in post cards, but nothing beats seeing it up close and personal. If you’re using an ordinary point and shoot camera, I’m very sure that every shot of Paoay Church will still be picture perfect!

My jaw dropped the moment I laid my eyes on Paoay Church. How can you not be mesmerized by its beauty and grandeur?

Paoay Church, also known as San Agustin Church is actually a UNESCO World Heritage site. Incidentally, we got married at San Agustin Church in Intramuros, Manila which is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. And just the day before, I set foot at Calle Crisologo which also brags the same title.

Ang ganda ng grass! Gusto ko  nga sana magpagulong-gulong! Kaso ang sama ng tingin ng mga bantay. Hahahaha!!! :p

I am not sure if Paoay Church is undergoing renovation because from the looks of the church’s ceiling, it seems that it’s going through a lift.

Na-imagine ko si Padre Damaso na nakatayo dito!

Since it was my first time in Paoay Church, I made a wish! It’s actually the same wish I made at Bantay Church. Kapag hindi pa naman natupad ‘yun, ewan ko na lang! :p


We planned to stock up on purified water as we heard that it costs a fortune in Pagudpud. We walked a few meters from Paoay Church. But instead of finding water, we ended up buying lots of chichacorn for pasalubong. ^_^
