The Church Of St. Mary The Virgin in Sagada, also known as the ANGLICAN CHURCH in Poblacion is said to be the oldest church in Cordillera. It was originally built under the direction of Rev. John Staunton year 1904, under the American regime and became a parish year 1962.
Whoa! It is really a very old church. Even older than my grandparents. One of the reasons why this church became very interesting for me. This church even survived the World War 2 and was just repaired.
I love visiting churches, especially the old ones because aside from the amazing architectural designs, you will be , amazed how these kind of churches were built. Actually,it was my second time to visit Church Of St. Mary The Virgin Sagada. But it is just my first time to see what’s inside the church.
The first time we visited, we only took our photos within the vicinity. We did not roam around much because of the time constraint, but I was able to take some photos:

Well, that’s it. I hope that you can visit the Church Of St. Mary The Virgin too when you visit Sagada. There’s so much more to see and do in Sagada like the famous Hanging coffins, spelunking, mountaineering, exploring food, culture and knowing their people. ok? Enjoy your trip!
