My World#45 Philippine Churches Part 3: Sistine Chapel of the Philippines

If you are planning to visit churches somewhere in Luzon, make sure to visit Betis Church at Guagua, Pampanga. The church's facade may not look as impressive as its contemporaries, but the interiors of the church more than made up for it. Its wood-carved doors are already precursors of what inside, see the door here.

Betis Church is considered the Sistine Chapel of the Philippines. It is located about an hour ride from Manila and the trip is all worth it.

That church is amazing, hope the preservation continues in the coming year so many more of our kabayans get to enjoy this.

Those old churches had magnificent art and sculpture, not seen in the modern churches of today. Great shots!
