The Saint Augustine Parish Church, commonly known as Bantay Church, is a Roman Catholic church in the Municipality of Bantay, Ilocos Sur. The church is also known as the Shrine of Our Lady of Charity (Nuestra Señora de La Caridad) housing the miraculous image of Virgin as Our Lady of Charity crowned as the patroness of Ilocandia on January 12, 1956. The church was named after its patron saint St. Agustine of Hippo.
The old historic belfry of the church known as the Bantay Tower, which served as a watchtower for pirates back in the Spanish colonial era, gave the town its name - bantay (meaning to guard). Established in 1590, the church is one of the oldest in the Ilocos Region. - Wikipedia

This was our first destination for our Day 1 of Tour after our rehearsal for 2 hours. The entire place was such a sight. We enjoyed every inch of the place and felt its beauty.

And of course, we didn't let the chance pass by for photo op!:)
