Visit the Oldest Churches in the Philippines for Holy Week

The oldest churches in the Philippines are a symbol of the country’s colonial past. Their sturdy stone walls and ornate altars talk about centuries of worship, veneration, wars, and deaths.

As a Catholic country, it is not surprising that the country has a number of historic churches. The National Historical Commission of the Philippines has, in fact, declared that all colonial churches and other houses of worship built before 1940 are considered "Classified Historic Structures."

With lack of proper documentation, it's difficult to truly pinpoint the oldest church structures in the Philippines. Many consider the Baclayon Church in Bohol as the second oldest church in the Philippines, but it's the parish that was established in 1596; the church building itself was built in the 18th century.

The process of clarifying this and identifying centuries-old structures is not that simple, explains Stephen Pamorada of the National Commission of the Culture and Arts’ PRECUP team. “We have to dig deeper. It takes archival research to pinpoint which is the oldest church in the Philippines,” he says.

Pamorada admits that they're still continuing to search for church ruins from the 1500s to the early 1600s (leads may be e-mailed to [email protected]), but for now, the registry's documents only list 17th-century structures as the five oldest churches in the Philippines.

Parish Church of Immaculate Concepcion of Quipayo
Calabanga, Camarines Sur




Established as a town in 1578 by Franciscan missionaries, Fr. Pablo de Jesus and Fr. Bartolome Ruiz, not only is Quipayo one of the oldest churches in the Philippines, it's one of the earliest structures built during the Spanish Regime in the region. Until now, the church stands as an enduring symbol of Catholicism in Bicol.

This church services the parishes of Ligmanan (Libmanan), Baigon (Siruma), Calabangan (Calabanga), and Bombon. The patroness of Quipayo is Our Lady of the Immaculate Concepcion. There were also some artifacts excavated at the site of the church, which are now displayed in a museum behind the church altar.

It was declared a National Historical Landmark by Presidential Decree No. 260, dated August 1, 1973, and amended by Presidential Decree No. 1505, dated June 11, 1978.

^^ Exciting!

They're building Vista Mall Naga phase by phase, similar to how Evia Lifestyle Center grew to become one of the nicest lifestyle centers in the Alabang-Daanghari area.

I hope all these push through.

NAGA CITY JUSTICE ZONE LAUNCHED. Naga City is now proclaimed as a Justice Zone– a city wherein local justice agencies collaborate in identifying problems and arrive at common solutions to address them.

This was made possible through the Governance in Justice (GOJUST) Program funded by the European Union (EU) aimed to emphasize a systematic approach on justice processes and contribute to tackling injustices at the local level.

CONGRATULATIONS NAGA CITY!

…and the Mini Donut is one of them.



These home made style donutsare served
in paper containers,sprinkled with either
chocolate or cinnamon sugar powder-



…but whichever you choose,
both are deliciously addicting.

Let me emphasize that the mall management pleaded for the post to be taken off because of the ongoing negotiations and known brands are involved. They, however, promised to bring those brands to Bicol through VMN.

VMN promises from day one to be your not ordinary mall and it looks like they gonna keep it that way. :cheers:
