Borongan Cathedral

Posted by admin on January 14, 2008

Today, nothing remains of Jesuit architecture in Borongan.  Hardly any of Franciscan either except for Navarrete’s circular bell tower, a town landmark. The church fabric itself was drastically renovated, the façade replaced by a new one, the walls torn down to make way for more doors and windows. The church pillars though covered with cement and paint belong to the old fabric. Their positions give an indication of the size of the Franciscan-built church.

In the town plaza is an old image of Santiago in stone. (Panublion)
