San Pedro De Alcantara Church (Pakil Church)

Completed in 1767 after 35 years of construction, the architectural design of the Pedro de Alcantara Parish Church is reminiscent of the Corinthian and Ionic styles. Through the years, the church has survived great calamities. Along with the rectory, Now, the church is a major attraction of the area.

It's belfry four small bells and one huge bell, which are rung daily at 12:00 noon and 6:00 p.m.

St. Gregory Church (Majayjay Catholic Church)

One of the oldest churches in the Philippines built in 1575 using forced labor. Antique relief statues of saints, which were brought by the Spaniards, are preserved in this church. Its belfry houses four small bells and one big bell – which are probably the oldest in the country.

Our Lady Of Candelaria (Mabitac Church)

Mabitac Church stands mighty high atop its 126 stone steps. Its façade is definitely old Spanish style but the interior is quite modern. Like most old churches, it has a belfry connected to the main church.

St. James The Apostle Church (Paete Church)

Paete Church was built during the early Spanish period. But the novelty of this church lies in the fact that all the religious images found here were carved and/or painted by the residents of Paete long ago.
