CHURCHES IN THE DIOCESE OF ALAMINOS, PANGASINAN

On our way back from our visit to Zambales, we also passed by some churches in Pangasinan. From the last town of Santa Cruz of Zambales going up north we passed by the churches of Infanta, Eguia, Dasol, Burgos, Mabini, Aguilar and Mangatarem. All these churches belong to the Diocese of Alaminos.  The churches of Aguilar and Mangatarem I already visited the first time in 2006 hence, I just took pictures of the façade this time when we passed by. All these churches were established still in the 1800's except that of Mabini which even dates back to 1610. 



ST. JOHN THE EVANGELIST PARISH CHURCH
