Dingle Church: Something Different

Dingle Church was built in 1874 using yellowish limestone in Neoclassic Architecture. The details of the facade share some similarities with the facades of Lambunao and Duenas Churches. The sole belfry seems to be a mere example of 'Vulgar Gothic' which is somewhat a pleasant departure from the Neoclassic wholeness brought by the facade.

Dingle, which was then called Baong was once a visita of Pototan and became an independent parish in 1611. Though the church is not as large as compared to the huge churches of Molo and Cabatuan, it boasts a clean and preserved elegance which matches the calmness and tranquility of the town.

Hi! my father is from Dingle. I took rin pictures ng Dingle Church just 3 weeks ago noong nandun ako... For the spirit of history I wish na sana di nalang nilagay yung canopy dun sa entrance. Parang out of place sya.
