Guimbal Church

Guimbal ChurchGuimbal Church or St. Nicholas of Tolentino Church doesn’t have any record to when it was erected or established. But however completed between 1769 and 1774 under Friar Juan Campos. In 1893, it was further enlarged but later was destroyed by fire during the Revolution in 1896 to 1898.

This church of Guimbal was built from coral stone and yellow limestone through forced labor. The design is more on Spanish Colonial Style. The columns placed on the facade were added as additional support and has an artistic design. But I noticed that the road in front of the church is on a higher level than the floor of the church.
