San Pedro de Alcantara Church
Pakil, Laguna


The San Pedro de Alcantara Church of Pakil, Laguna, built in 1684, is one of the best preserved in Laguna. It stands as a fine example of colonial baroque architecture with its curlicue stonework and cherubs on the facade.

Every corner of the church reflects creativeness and much so the unexpected. For example, the holy water font basin rests on a monkeys (or a devils) head. An intriguing artwork is the huge painting Judicium Finale by Paete artist Jose Dans, illustrating heaven, purgatory and hell.
