The Philippines has many churches with a belfries built unattached. Paoay Church, Laoag Cathedral and Vigan Cathedral are some of them. The usual reason is for protection against earthquakes. The main structure usually becomes the victim of a collapsing tower in the event of a quake. Notice that the Jaro main structure has side towers built more recent than the rest of the structure.

Here's Paoay's earthquake baroque...

Laoag's belfry is 85 meters away from the church according to Byahilo and like Jaro's cathedral, also located across the street...

Hetong sa Bantay Church asa side pero malayo... Aside from avoiding damage to the main church structure in the case of an earthquake, its position on a hill served the purpose of being a lookout for pirate raiders.

A blogger has this explanation for the construction of these belfries at a distance from the church...

"If you’ll notice in Ilocos most of the bell towers are located a few meters away from the church itself. This is to make sure the former wouldn’t topple on the later during an earthquake."

Check this out...

You'd see how many faultlines crisscross the Ilocos Region. Though not as numerous in the Ilocos Region, Iloilo has to deal with the Western Panay faultline. I've learned of Oton Church's destruction by earthquake in 1948 in this thread. It would have been the largest and grandest of Panay's Catholic edifices. Jaro belfry also suffered tectonic damages throughout its lifetime.

Simpliving quotes I Love Iloilo in his blog:

Quote:
“The belfry, campanario, or bell tower is a given fixture of every Catholic church. It houses the bells, which basically toll the hours, call the people to mass, and announce important events. The Jaro belfry suffered numerous tectonic damages throughout its existence.

During the Spanish times, the belfry also served as watchtower against invaders. Such was the case of the Jaro belfry built around 1744. Made of bricks and limestone blocks, it was a three story tower 29 meters high. On July 17, 1787, the campanario was heavily damaged by a strong earthquake. Reconstruction only began in 1833 under the supervision of an Augustinian friar, Fr. Jesse Alvarez.

Records show that between 1933-1881, another earthquake damaged this belfry. Msgr. Mariano Cuartero, the first bishop of Jaro, had this completely restored in 1881. However, the Jaro belfry suffered its third major destruction on January 25, 1948, when the earthquake named Lady Caycay swept through the entire Panay region.

About a decade ago, the reconstruction of the Jaro Belfry was begun under the supervision of the National Historical Institute. It is intended as a viewing deck and tourist center.”

Marawi Mosque



Lanao del Sur is the land of the Maranaos, “people of the lake,” among the most devout of Muslim tribes as well as the most artistic. Nowhere is this more evident than in the the people’s most natural way of life and the land’s most attractive sites.
