    Declared by the National Museum as a National Cultural Treasure, St. Vincent Ferrer's Church is one of the oldest and biggest church in North Luzon built through the initiative of the Augustinian Fathers in 1776. It is made of brick, lime, coral or river rock and wood plastered over with stucco. The church covers an area of 7,200 square meters and its architectural design is similar to that of Tuguegarao's St. Peter Cathedral. It features a baptistery and narthex pillars covered with finely carved stucco. The church's convent retains some features from its violent past, such as slits on the outer walls which were used by archers to defend against attacks.

    This is acclaimed to be the oldest acacia tree (Semanea-saman) in Luzon. It was brought by some ancestors from Nueva Ecija in 1880. It is one of the five mother trees planted in Dupax del Sur.

    Facing the church, there was an old bell tower on the right. We spent some time around its base recording the afternoon light and the rich texture of moss and lichen on aged brickwork on digital image.

    Check out how we make the climb up the bell tower.

    Sorry, not much of a night life in this barangay when peeps usually sleep by 9pm.

    For the night owls, do travel with a deck of cards. :D

    Our Filipino friends taught us a card game, "Pusoy Dos", which is similar to "Chor Tai Di" except diamond 2 is the biggest, followed by hearts, spade and clubs being the smallest suit.

    If you do not have a car then to get around you will need to catch the local jeepneys or hire a tricycle with driver - you are about 6 miles from Bambamg (good for food market and essential shopping) and 1/2 hr from Solano where you will find the nearest Jollibee

Dupax del Sur Off The Beaten Path

  • by reynaldo6 Written Apr 7, 2010

    actually there is an old bridge located near the church. it was built at the same time the church was built. most tourist and some locals seems to pass by it and doesn't that they are stepping upon one of dupax's historical treasure. you will croos the bridge when you go to the municipality of dopaj.. it was spared by renovation when a road widening project was undertaken by the local govewrnment. so if you croos the bridge only one car can pass through it at a time.
