We do all know that since 1994, Miag-ao Church has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site. From its construction more than 200 years ago as a fortress church, built to defend the constituents from the frequent Moro and pirate raids of the past, it became a manifestation of Filipino ingenuity and fruits of labour of our ancestors.

Known for having a baroque-rococo architecture, somehow it stands as a clash of civilisations. The lush tropical motif of the church's facade describe the tropical environment of the islands. San Cristobal is seen carrying the Santo Niņo (Christ Child) in his back while holding to a coconut tree trunk.

The belfries, which are uneven in design and height, adds to its uniqueness. The yellow sandstone used is one of its kind in southern Iloilo. Massive walls and seemingly incorporation of Aztec architecture, made this church an architectural marvel.



Southern belfry - In fairness, it has now a carillon.

In front


Let's go with the details

Just recently, NCCA had the facade cleaned, as part of the UNESCO WHC perks. How I wish all of our heritage sites would have the budget too.


San Cristobal y Santo Niņo


Guayava, Papaya, Coconata...




The pediment somehow reminds me of anything Aztec. Include that the belfries--most especially the northern belfry.

La puerta mayor


A more squat north belfry


In fairness with the restoration, they have this saint's hand fixed.


I guess this is the king of Espaņa


In the middle of the rococo-shell niche is the statue of Miag-ao's patron saint, Santo Tomas de Villanueva


Rococo-Baroque and Azteca mixed in one facade
