I was going over my copy of archival images of churches that I got from the San Agustin Museum in Manila via Fr. Pedro Galende, OSA when I was still working on the Philippine Church Facades book when I stumbled on these archival images of Capiz’s beautiful art deco style Sigma Church.
While at present, only the facade remains, a close look does show some changes from the original:
- Addition of flanks that widened the church and which has separate entrances each
- the rectangular windows in the original were windened and added a lunette
- the main portal was changed from the original wood to the present metal door that was also widened a little bit
- the addition of a portico in the present church, and
- addition of two images of saints flanking the belfry
Do check out the present day images in this post.
