Even from afar, it was evident that the church was under construction during our visit.
The church was broken during one typhoon, so the roof, and the interior of the church were reconstructed. But even though it was currently under renovation, they accepted visitors, and we were very willing to see it.
The View from Tukon Church
The church is situated on the top of a hills, which give it a great view of its surroundings. Here is the view from one side of the church. The view of the hills and the ocean is fantastic.
Then here is the view from the other side. There is also the view of the ocean and the hills, which has a lot of trees like these Banana trees.

The feeling of being amazed by the view and the structure of the church makes it fun. I almost gave it a perfect 5, but it was still under construction. I hope we can be back when it finishes.
