St Augustine Church In Mendez Cavite

After the St Gregory the Great Church, we headed to the nearby town of Indang, the Mendez-Nuñez, one of the smallest and upland towns of Cavite province. The small and peaceful town of Mendez has St Augustine Church which is really accessible as it can be found at the highway across the town plaza.GEDC0162eIt is one of the notable Twin Tower churches in Luzon and the only one in Cavite. Although it doesn’t look like an old Church after its recent renovation in 2005, Mendez Church or officially known as St. Augustine Parish was was established in 1881 although other sources were claiming that it was established around 1712 but the church was destroyed during the second world war.  The church recently celebrated its 300th anniversary!
