Have you ever heard about Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy? Yes, but do you know that it has a less famous counterpart here in the small town of Milaor in the province of Camarines Sur.
The Leaning Tower of Milaor is the bell tower of Milaor Church (St. Joseph Worker Parish). This church is very old like other churches in the Bicol Peninsula. The first church was constructed in 1725 and completed in 1735 but later destroyed by fire in 1740. The present church was constructed in 1740 and the belfry was constructed in 1840. Huh, its been a very long time ago maybe that’s why its leaning nowadays.
It’s amazing how this stone structure has survived the ravages of time. Include Milaor Church on your visit list this coming Holy Week!
