My World#20 Sto. Rosario Church, Camiguin, Philippines

This is Sto. Rosario Church or Our Lady of Holy Rosary Church of Sagay, Camiguin Island, Philippines. It was built on 1882 and is one of the very old churches in the island of Camiguin. When we got there early this month to visit, the church was undergoing some repairs.

As is with the old churches, its walls are quite thick but what I find unique from this church is its driftwood chandeliers. The driftwoods were also made as part of the church's altar and wall decorations.

How unique! The chandeliers are really pretty. And with the old thick walls, I'll bet it's cool and quiet inside. Thanks for showing it to us.

That is wonderful and so very different from churches I'm used to.I loved the rustic feel of it but the view from inside was really most atmospheric. More places of worship should be this close to nature itself.

That's very nice. Love the chandeliers!
