Philippine Church- St James the Great (Betis, Pampanga)
The Philippine Church is an Important Place of Worship in the Philippines. It is the Center of a Town or City. And this is where people congregate not just to pray, but also to socialize with each other. So, I from now on I will start to feature a Church which I have visited. Let us start with the Church of Saint James the Great located in Barangay Betis, Guagua, Pampanga.
This church was first built on May 2,1572 with light materials by Augustinian Father Fernando Pinto. The church is now listed as a National Cultural Treasure. The walls including the ceiling are adorned with murals by Simon Flores and by the father and son team of Macario and Jose Ligon.
