La Inmaculada Concepción Church in Jasaan

Immaculata Conception Church JasaanThe Parish Church of La Inmaculada Concepcion, Jasaan, Misamis Oriental was built in the late 19th century and early 20’s by the Jesuits. The church is a “provincial” attempt at imitation of an urban design, in this case, San Ignacio Church in Manila. There are signifact portions of the original brick paving, neo-Geo ratablo and ceiling woodwork. The Philippines is home to hundreds of centuries-old Spanish colonial churches. Built at the height of Spanish influence in the archipelago, these churches are a fusion of European and Asian architectural motifs. Today, the Philippines’ colonial churches still stand out from the country’s modern cityscapes and continue to play a key role in the spiritual development of the country’s 58 million Catholics. Although these churches have remained largely intact for centuries, the ravages of pollution and urban development have taken their toll on these edifices.
