San Pablo Church – San Pablo, Isabela

The municipality of Cabagan is beside the municipalities of Tumauini and San Pablo in Isabela. Both towns possess an old preserved church that is worth to explore. First to visit is the church in San Pablo.

 This church is considered the oldest church in the province of Isabela. It was founded by Padre de Sto. Tomas in 1646.

The façade is now on its ruins but the altar is still on its original state and only little renovation has been made.

Only half of the whole church is still in use, the other half is part of the ruins.

Its bell tower is also considered the highest belfry in the whole Cagayan Valley.

When going to a certain province, we also include visiting old churches. Seeing an old church especially on its ruins makes me visualize the era and its glory once upon a time. The only edifice that is still standing that knows the entire tale from the past to present, and in the future.
