Pangasinan Agno 205
The air is instantly cooler inside this centuries-old church, not because of air-conditioning, obviously, but because of its incredibly thick stone walls that confirm its age. Religious tourists will undoubtedly be compelled to reverence once inside the ancient church with its high ceilings and quiet elegance. But eve the non-religious will find interest in the structure's architectural features. Those who would like to see more of the church should go outside its main halls. Outside, the original structure, though covered in vines, still stands to reveal just how big the parish was when it was originally built.
Open: Everyday, 8am-5pm. Open on holidays.
Address: Zamora Street, Agno, Pangasinan
Fee: Free

Nearby attractions

Don Marcelo Nagal Bridge (Balincaguin River)
Attraction
0.60 km away

Only about 5 minutes away from the town center, this bridge is perfect for a late afternoon stroll, and is a great spot to enjoy the pristine beauty of the Balincaguin River. It is also easy to access the river from here, with a short flight of steps leading down to the water. The depth is great but strong swimmers may find the calm waters irresistible. For those who enjoy watersports, stand-up paddle boarding and kayaking are also possible, though the sight and the rush of the river can be enjoyed just by sitting on the banks watching it flow past.

Calomboyan Viewpoint in Agno
Attraction
2.85 km away

If there's any view that will make you fall in love with Agno, it's the one you'll see from this viewpoint, which is really just a random stop on a winding road in Calomboyan. In the sunshine, you'll be treated to more greens and blues than your eyes can handle, with the lush treetops in perfect contrast to the gossamer sheen of the Balincaguing River. With such incredible beauty before you, you'll be compelled to take a million snaps, but before you commence your mini-photo shoot, take a moment to breathe and take the view in sans tech. It'll be good for your lungs, as well as your soul.

Umbrella Rocks in Agno
Attraction
3.31 km away

If you want to see mother nature's handiwork at its finest, this is where you should go. As the name suggests, these rocks have been carved out by the sea to their present umbrella-esque shape. These peculiarly-shaped rock formations that line the shore of Agno's Sabangan beach are beautiful at any time of the day, but the sight of them at sunrise is especially striking; so drag yourself out of bed if you have to. Nearby, there is also a lighthouse that offers you a birds-eye view of the beach, as well as a glimpse of the Umbrella rocks from above.
