Concepcion Church interior

Concepcion Church was built in 1880 under the supervision of Father Guillermo Masnou. The original church has a Baroque style of architecture but was then renovated to its present Neo-Romanesque style in 1893 under the supervision of Father Fernando Vasquez.

Concepcion Church facade is obviously made of the usual mortar, gravel, cement, wood, steel, and concrete. However, the additional red bricks add more appeal to the exterior of the church. Its two three-tiered bell towers that ride on both sides of the facade also add symmetry to the church.

The Backpack Adventures visits Concepcion Church

What I like about Concepcion Church is its "grandiose" feel. I think this church is one of those churches perfect for dream weddings.

Concepcion Church admission fee: 

It's FREE to explore the church and its vicinity, however, some people charge parking fees in the parking spaces near the church.
