Baybay, Leyte

Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception Church 

The Church of Baybay City in Leyte is an example of a Spanish-era Church constructed in 1852 by Fr. Vicente E. Cronado , continued by Maestro Proceso who came from Manila to finish the work. It was gutted by fire in 1866 except for the Holy Cross Chapel. The church was finally finished in 1870 after Capitan Mateo Espinoso, a sculptor and painter of renown, put on the finishing touches. The altar and the rails as they stand today are a credit to his genius. (Wikipilipinas)
