DINGRAS, Ilocos Norte – The Laoag Diocese has implemented the rehabilitation of the town’s church heritage in an effort to strengthen the centuries-old structure.

The Church of San José de Dingras, built in the late 15th century, has been described as one of the most picturesque facades in the country owing to its Baroque magnificence.

The church was destroyed and rebuilt several times on separate historical periods beginning 1707 until the structure became unsafe and was finally abandoned in 1931. It was in late 1990s that the church began soliciting support from parishioners locally and abroad and restored the ruins.
