Paoay Church (St. Augustine) is made of coral blocks and stucco-plastered bricks. The architecture is a unique combination of Gothic, Baroque,, and Oriental. Construction of the church was started in 1704 and completed in 1894.

A few meters away is the coral-stone bell tower which served as observation post of the Katipuneros during the Philippine Revolution (Wikipedia Article) and again by the Guerillas during the Japanese occupation. In 1992, the church is nominated to the UNESCO’s World Heritage List and officially inscribed in 1993.
