Paoay Church , Philippines

This sturdy, rather mound-shaped church is a fascinating combination of architectural styles and building materials.

Baroque, Gothic, and Oriental styles all combine in the different features of the Paoay Church.

The mix of building materials, including coral, tree sap, bricks, and lumber, give this style the name of Earthquake Baroque.

Also built of coral stone, the church's bell tower stands a short distance away, separate from the main church.

Paoay Church was finished in 1894, and was built to last for a long time to come.
