The Church of Iguig’s St. James the Apostle was founded and built by Rev. Pedro De San Pedro O.P. on 1765 and completed 22 years later on 1787, 180 years after Rev. Ambrosio De La Madre De Dios O.P. on the 28th of December 1607 founded the town of Iguig. The Church poses three flying buttress located at the back of the church made up of bricks from the piers and stoves of the region.

This feature is quite a unique structure since no other church in the Philippines has this feature. Another rare feature is the obelisk in front of the church. Tough these features are quite a rare and unique aspect of the church, St. James is better known for Calvary Hill. Built just recently the wide open space at the back of the church houses the different stations of the cross.
