Our Lady of Lourdes Church

Our lady of Lourdes Church or Salasa Church (Pangasinan) is one of the oldest churches in the Philippines. It was built under Father Francisco Barroso in the year 1747-1748. It was renovated and repaired during 1874 and 1885 under Father Juan Terres. This church was able to survive typhoons, floods and erosion. There are so many plans to move this church in different location but it never happened because of divine intervention.

This is not my first time to visit this church but this is the only time that I appreciate its own beauty and history
