Church of San Agustin

This church was constructed in 1604 and was finally completed n 1710. It is one of the most outstanding “earthquake baroque” structures in the country, where the primary concern was designing it as earthquake-proof.

The church’s most prominent feature is the buttress phalanx that just out perpendicularly from its sides to make the walls stronger against earthquake damage. In fact, it has the most massive buttresses compared with any church in the country.

Angono Cave

Located in Rizal, just a few kilometers from Manila, the Angono Caves or Angono Petroglyphs is the oldest known work of art in the country. Here, you will find more than a hundred animal and human figures engraved on the rock wall. These inscriptions, which are believed to be carved during the late Neolithic period, depict stylized figures, but there are other figures that were made indistinguishable by erosion. According to experts, these engravings are mostly symbolic representations of sympathetic magic and healing.
