San Jose de Obrero Church

As a part of our South Batan Tour, we passed by the church. As shown in the picture below, the church was located just in front of Ivana Port.

The church faces the great view of the hills and ocean. It was a nice way to enter and end our church visit. It’s like after we prayed inside the church, the fresh ambiance and view of nature welcomed us.

 

The facade of the church is made out of beige and golden yellow paint.

It is a quaint church, designed simple, just like the usual churches in the provinces of the Philippines.

Inside San Jose de Obrero Church - Batanes Travel Guide and Itinerary for 5 days - Happy and Busy Travels

Busy and I are both Catholics so we went inside and say our prayers. By the way, there is a saying that every time you went inside the church for the first time, you should say 3 wishes. So, Busy and I had our 3 wishes each. There is a lot of churches in Batanes, so we had a chance to say a lot of wishes.
