San Carlos Borromeo Church

In honor of its patron, St. Charles Borromeo, Mahatao Church is formally known as San Carlos Borromeo Church. It is administered by the Dominican Order, as are other churches in Batanes. The church was constructed in 1787. Over the ages, it has been renovated several times. It had either been destroyed by natural disasters or steadily improved through time via advancements in the usage of superior materials. The current construction is designed in the Baroque style. The entire church edifice is iridescent white, which makes it stand out.

Other areas of interest on the church grounds include an Old Spanish Lighthouse. It also houses the Batanes Blank Book Archive In the local dialect. It is a library of books with blank pages where visitors may write notes or even tell their own stories.
