Everytime i'm visiting different places, there's one place that i will not miss. Visiting it's parish church, and now i'm with another group of trippers. Our group will explore the town of San Antonio, Zambales, where the famous coves can be found. This town is the jumpoff for all the coves and island that is located near San Antonio.
Parish Church of San Antonio
This Church was created due to Mt. Pinatubo eruption on June 15, 1991 almost destroyed the entire church. For five years, this church was a make-shift chapel. Then by September 3, 1996, with the approval and encouragement of Bishop Deogracias S. Iñiguez Jr. construction of new church started, and after one year of construction on September 27, 1997, Church of Holy Infant was opened, and ready to served the people of San Antonio.

One of the most unique piece in a church are different saints placed in different portion of a church. Maybe for the reason, that some advocates and devotees pray for specific saints. Like on this church, the presence of different saints can be found.

Also this piece, is always present in a church, that comes with different styles, like this picture below, most of the bowls of holy water i've found in churches is included and cemented in two of the big post of the church entrance.
