Barasoain Church


Bulacan tours are incomplete without a visit to Barasoain Church. Officially known as Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish, the church was the site of the first Philippine Congress in 1898 and the inauguration of the First Philippine Republic in 1899. The Malolos Constitution was also drafted here. The church is also known for being featured in the last incarnation of the PHP10 bill.

The church itself was finished in 1888 and is made of stone and features Baroque architecture typical during the Spanish period. If you have a lot of time during your visit, you should also check out the Barasoain Museum or the Museo ng Republika ng 1899 (Museum of the 1899 Republic), which features dioramas of the historical events that happened at the church.
