Baoc Cathedral

Built as a fortress in 1792, the Boac Cathedral became a relevant part of the Marinduqueños colorful history and culture since its construction in the Spanish era. Upon entering the church, you will see beautifully carved doors and exterior walls that are made of red bricks. Inspired by Hispanic Gothic architecture, the cathedral’s interior and ceiling showcase simple yet intricate carvings. 

The cathedral’s grand facade and bell tower are composed of adobe stones and rough terra cotta. There are also massive buttresses that resemble the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Paoay Church in Ilocos.
