San Juan Bautista Church, Philippines

so after the blabber, here comes a normal post featuring a card from the Philippines

Received this card from Ronan through a swap, and here is what the back of the card says:

The construction of the church was started in 1864 and was completed in 1879. The stones on the church walls bear the noticeable marks of the masons who built the church. This church was named a national landmark on August 1 1993

the two stamps form a set issued in 2012, featuring the Diocese of Malolos ( Roman Rite diocese of the Latin Church of the Catholic Church in the Philippines. The motherchurch of the Diocese is the Malolos Cathedral located in Malolos City, Bulacan)
