Information about St. Philomena Parish
St. Philomena Church
The St. Philomena Church is a red brick church that sits in the municipality of Alcala in the province of Cagayan. This historic church is considered the widest in Cagayan and dates back to the Spanish colonial period in the Philippines. Its facade features white statues of angels. Adjacent to the church's facade is a red brick bell tower that also overlooks the polished courtyard in front of the church. Aside from serving as a place of faith for devout Catholics over the years, the church also became a base for Daniel Tirona, one of the leaders when the locals revolted against the Spanish rule in their province.
