The St.Catherine of Alexandria Church in Bagac is one of the oldest churches in Bataan. However, this the only remaining colonial feature of the L-shaped church is only seen at the walls along the left side. Buttressed adobe-walls and coral block are still visible. The right side wall is totally plastered and painted. The facade no longer shows a hint of being old. A new roof higher than the original is partly built. Protruding rebars suggest that further renovation projects is in order. That may soon totally change the appearance of this church.

How to get there:

From the Pilar-Morong Road, the junction is marked by the tall Philippine-Japan Friendship Tower. The fenced compound in the vicinity is the NPC Training Center. Turn left at this junction and follow the road which has a gentle slope downhil. At the Death March Kilometer Zero Marker, take the right fork. Follow this road further until it obviously turns left. At the end of this road, find the Bagac Church.

Footnote: Bagac has similar patron saint as Pagbilao, Quezon and Dumaguete City. Fiesta is celebrated Nov. 25
