|the Philippine Sistine Chapel, Betis Church|
From Bacolor, we proceeded to St. James the Apostle Parish Church in Betis, Pampanga. It was a Baroque church established in 1607. The preliminary structure was made mainly of wood and stucco. But when fire broke out several times due to these light materials, it was finally rebuilt in concrete in 1770. In 1939, the paintings on the ceilings were repainted by a native of San Agustín and an assistant who restored these paintings in the 1970s. It is now called the Sistine Chapel of the Philippines. It was declared a National Cultural Treasure by the National Museum and the National Commission for Culture and the Arts.
