The Red Church of Caramoan: Jewel in Paradise
Renzelle Ann Palma | Mar 28, 2014
Built in the 16th century, this red brick church found in the quaint town of Caramoan has withstood countless natural calamities and the devastation of World War II.
It took almost 200 years for the permanent structure to be complete, and the result is all worth it.
Made with adobe, local stone, and clay, the St. Michael Archangel Parish is as historic as it is beautiful.
Most travelers go to Caramoan to experience its islands, beaches, and sandbars made famous by the slew of Survivor reality TV show editions that have been shot here.
Thus they overlook this magnificent piece of heritage and Philippine architecture.
Don't miss it when you visit the scenic Caramoan peninsula in the province of Camarines Sur. For a quick stopover, you'll get a rich lesson on Pinoy culture and pride.
