San Guillermo Parish Church, The Half-Sunken Church ⛪
Almost twenty years after Mount Pinatubo’s devastating lahar flow ravaged the province of Pampanga, the San Guillermo Church still stands proud, this beautiful church had survived many disasters, aside from Mt. Pinatubo’s 1991 blasts.
The San Guillermo parish was founded by the Augustinians in 1576. And is named after the town’s patron, San Guillermo Ermitaño. It is built in the Baroque-style of architecture .
I am one of the many being captivated by it's beauty despite being half-buried. And I'm pretty sure I'll be visiting you again, and be able to capture more evidences of your aesthetics.
PS: Thank you sa aking guide na hindi din talagang tubong Bacolor, lalong hindi Kapampangan. Idk how you survived the sermon being done in Kapampangan. And I still laugh thinking how you would also laugh kapag nagbibitaw ng joke si Father, kahit dmo naiintindihan. Epic. 😂😂 #sanguillermoparishchurch#bacolorpampanga#basilica#churches#halfburied#captured#instamood#instadaily#sheytravels#sheywanders#exploreph
When Tinky Winky just wave and smile while trapped half-burried,
Dipsy got so drunk, he's gonna puke,
Lala twerking her ass off (or maybe #macancisewu -ing?)
and Po who didn't give a f*ck about anything
The half-buried San Guillermo Parish Church in Bacolor, Pampanga. "On September 3, 1995, lahar flow from the slopes of Mount Pinatubo which erupted into world notice on June 15, 1991, buried the church at half its 12-m height prompting its more than 50,000 town residents to evacuate to safer grounds in resettlement areas."
