rising on top of the hill overlooking the town of Boac is its 18th century fortress church.surrounded by thick stone walls as a protection from invaders during the old times. it was believed that a major attack happened to this town but the people were miraculously saved.it is believed that the falg of the Katipunan was blessed in this church which makes it also an important historical landmark.
the church interior, like the one in Liliw, is made up of red bricks. the church has beautiful and elegant wall lights that stands out from other churches that i've visited.the church ceiling has sun-shaped decorations that adds its uniqueness. if you observe it closely, it has an influence of an oriental style decoration.the main door entrance is ornate in nature and is artistically carved on it are the four evangelist with creatures and symbols below them. you can find wooden carvings of all the stations of the cross around the church.
the view from above will make you appreciate the other elements of the church. like the circular hole and windows that displays the church landscape.i believe that the heart of each town is its church and more than just being historical it stands as a fortress to the Christian faith.upcoming post is the Moriones Festival.
