In the course of my appraisal work, I visited places like Palo Church.

Palo Church is a historical landmark in Palo which was built in 1596 by Fr. Alonso de Humanes, a Jesuit who came to the place when the sitio had only two houses, who spread the gospel of Christ, baptized natives, taught the children to read and write, pray the rosary, sing church hymns or play the flute.
