Yes, that is exactly the name of Sta. Ana church and it is a small, beautiful and well-kept adobe church from the Spanish era. The Sta. Ana parish has its own columbary and newly renovated garden for parking.

A sense of History and Franciscan piety is the ambiance of this church. Restored to its original looks, the church has survived several wars and remains in service for Our Lady of the Abandoned.

Sta. Ana church is probably one of the ancient churches in the country. The church's facade has been newly restored giving it a really nice look. But what one must see is the Camarin of the Virgen delos Desamparados which was declared a National Cultural...More

The church facade was being repaired when I visited. But then the beauty of the church exteriors is evident with the sides. The interiors are also spectacular. When I visited, it was Holy Week and the faithful prayed over the station of the cross set-up...More
