It was really nothing special as far as a attraction. It was a ok church that was closed. Nice construction ..nothing grand set in the Sagada area woods. Just a relaxing walk..but not awsome

the simplicity of the church complements the simplicity of sagada. entering the church will give you goosebumps knowing the traditional ways of burial and ceremonies being held every now and then. they embrace christianity without sacrificing their tradition and culture.

Nobody goes to Sagada without visiting the Church which has been there for a century. The grounds are perfect for photos, they have services every morning. Perfect for weddings too.

The long walk and trail going to this church is worth upon entering the premises. Nice architecture and interior. One can pray solemnly in this church and be alone with God. It's nice to visit this place and be thankful to God for the wonderful place we spent our vacation

We are Catholics but that will not stop us in visiting other Houses of Worship most especially if the architecture meets our fancy. This is one of those since this is Episcopalian. This church is really very beautiful, the altar simple as it is is very nice, the building itself shows sturdiness. The interior is not sparse but very simple... More

If you ask your tour guide, this church isn't always open. Thankfully, when we went there, it was! and so we got to see the inside. Most of the people of Sagada are Episcopalian because they were the only missionaries who came to the place during the American occupation. (The Roman Catholic church in Sagada is only built very recently).... More

the chuch has a very calming vibe.... it has a wooden ceilings and pretty windows that looks something like in Europe or America. I love the stained glass as the center of the church.

Inside the church you will appreciate the neat and simplicity decors, matching with beautiful mosaic, their Jesus Christ figure made of natural wood formation. Very nice and beautiful.

The Anglican Church of St. Mary the Virgin is the oldest church in the Cordillera region outside Baguio City. Located at the Episcopalian Mission Compound, it was consecrated on December 8, 1921. You can see the mixture of foreign and indigenous design.

Stop by in the early morning or late afternoon. Find a quiet pew and sit and meditate. Take in the serenity. Come during the off season to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere.
