Camalig Church (St. John the Baptist Church) was declared by the National Museum of the Philippines as one of the Significant Structures of the Philippines under the category of Important Cultural Property last December 2016.

 

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.
