Dominican missionaries declared Cauayan a full-fledged parish in 1741, dedicating it to Our Lady of the Pillar commonly known as the NUESTRA SEÑORA DEL PILLAR.
The church was first constructed using bricks and galvanized roofing. This was later damaged by an earthquake.
It’s a beautiful combination of old and modern architecture. The exterior part of the church is well preserved while the interior was renovated and glorified with a beautiful painting on the ceiling showing the coronation of Virgin Mary.
I also took a look at the church from inside looking out into the entrance.
Today, it is a very well-preserved architecture of red bricks, with its imposing facade.
