Santiago de Apostol Church Pampanga
----the second largest church in Pampanga... and has been declared one of the one of the national cultural treasures by our National Museum... It is also known as the " SISTINE CHAPEL of the Philippines " ... because of the hand-painted murals on the ceilings and walls.....unlike the sistine chapel in Rome, these murals where painted into the wooden planks in the celing of the church. These murals were painted by a local artist named Simon Flores.
