Ruins of San Pablo Church

Written By: Kaloy - Apr• 01•10

SanRuins of the Church of Santo Tomas Pablo, Isabela
Known as the Oldest Church in the province of Isabela 210 years before Isabela even became a province. The Curch of San Pablo was erected on 1624 by Padre Santo Tomas. Today, San Pablo is nestled near the Maharlika highway on the path to Cagayan Valley. The church was severely damaged during WWII and has it’s roof already missing…

Aside from this small fact, San Pablo has been restored recently by the faithful of Isabela. Ruins would be a slight name to call it since the church is still in operational and holds regular masses. This is because half of the church’s roof was erected to make the services possible, transforming the churches front part into a garden that is very popular nowadays for destination weddings.
