Pagsanjan is one of the most visited tows in Laguna. It is small, historic and highly texturized: it’s got rich natural resources (Pansanjan falls), beautiful people and historic places. One of these places is the Pagsanjan Church. Built during the 1600s, Spanish era, this church is very well-maintained.
The facade is painted white, and with the sea of people doing their visita iglesia as early as April 1, 2017, when we visited, it gave a beautiful contrast.
I, however, feel that it is colored too “modern,” too white and it has lost its old church charm but kudos to the maintenance of this church.
It seems like the church is at the juncture or “pagsanjan” of modernity and old-world.
The church is in the bayan or centro or city center. It is not difficult to find it. It is near the municipal hall, and a busy intersection. It is literally in “pagsanjan.” This place is surely an attraction in Laguna. No wonder its parking area was able to accommodate about 12 buses.
