Important Cultural Property is a recognition given to any cultural property (objects or structures) that bears strong cultural, artistic and historical significance to the country. St. John the Baptist Church is now declared as significant built heritage of the county.
The formal declaration is set on June 24, 2017 during the feast day mass in honor of St. John the Baptist, town’s patron saint. (jlvillanueva)
