Destination: Pangasinan Part 3-Bolinao Church

St. Joseph Cathedral
On our second day, which happens to be my natal day, we went to Bolinao. On our way, we made a stop in a diocese of Alaminos named St.Joseph Cathedral Parish upon demand of Mr. Benjamin Layug, who wrote a book about Philippine churches. In Bani, one of the towns we passed, we stop again to for Benjamin so we could take pictures of old houses.

Upon reaching Bolinao finally, we came to take pictures of the oldest church in Bolinao. Not only it is one of the oldest In Pangasinan, it is where the first mass in Bolinao was held. It also had a marker for it. I saw Benjamin was overwhelmed with emotion after seeing the interior of the church because it was affected by a recent typhoon that left the church damaged.

Bolinao is also celebrating its fiesta. Bolinao also has the sites for beach resorts. Our next stop is El Pescador Resort.
