Tarlac: Concepcion Church

Located in the town of Concepcion in the province of Tarlac, Concepcion Church is one of the Spanish-era churches of the province.

Concepcion Church is also referred to as the following; Immaculate Conception Parish Church, Santuario de la Immaculada Concepcion, and Shrine of the Immaculate Conception

Gotta love the brick finished church facade

The church was built in 1880 under the supervision of Father Guillermo Masnou. The original church has a Baroque style of architecture but was then renovated to its present Neo-Romanesque style in 1893 under the supervision of Father Fernando Vasquez.

The church facade is obviously made of the usual mortar, gravel, cement, wood, steel, and concrete. However, the additional red bricks adds more appeal to the exterior of the church. Its two three-tiered bell towers that ride on both sides of the facade also adds symmetry to the church.

What I like about the church is its "grandiose" feel. I think this church is one of those churches perfect for dream weddings... Overall, Concepcion Church is a nice place for a stopover if you're just passing by Tarlac. You could also visit Aquino's Ancestral House which is only a few blocks away from the church.

Getting there:

Go to the Pasay or Cubao terminal of the Five Star Bus lines. from there you may ride a bus that goes direct to Concepcion, Tarlac. Fare is around P160 - P180.
