Immaculate Conception Parish Church; Macalelon, Quezon

Coral stone blocks make up this edifice which was erected 1854. Flanked by two small belfries, it projects a quaint but grand appeal. Good to note that a flight of stairs precedes the church, since it is situated on top of a small hill. A usual location for churches in coastal towns.


All major network are available here: Globe, Smart and Sun Cellular; also fixed landlines by SANTELCOR. Internet in some establishments are available through their Internet Cafes at the center of the municipality.
