The modernized interior of Pitogo Church

Pitogo Church is one of the interesting churches in Quezon province’s Bondoc Peninsula in terms of form with its semicircular pediment that is uncommon in the country. However, the interior has already been modernized with no trace of the old.

Beside the church and at the presbytery area is an extension structure which is also made of coral stone. I’m not sure if this served as the sacristy before. The roofing is already new and there are bas reliefs at the top of the window and main entrance.
