Church of St. Augustine of Hippo & Pipe Organ, Bacong, Negros Oriental


Completed in 1865; situated by the sea; main altar is reputed to be the province’s oldest; its pipe organ from Zaragosa, Spain was installed in 1894 through the efforts of its first parish priest, Rev. Joaquin Soriano. The belfry, reputed to be the province’s tallest, with winding steps to the top, was used as a look-out point for seafaring pirates.

Dumaguete Belfry, Negros Oriental


Erected in 1811 as belltower of the Cathedral of St. Catherine of Alexandria and watchtower to forewarn townfolks of impending attack of marauders. Restored in 1985 and skirted with a garden ten years later, the belfry has become the city’s most popular architectural landmark.
