Panay Church - Asia's Biggest Bell

One place that captivates in the Captivating Capiz is the church in Panay . This is one of the oldest church in Asia having a very memorable and valuable history in the Philippines. According to my sources, Panay church was recently restored and rebuild to make it last for more longer years. If in case you will visit the captivating Capiz visit Panay and see their church, the church that houses the biggest bell in Asia.

Trivial information about the church: It is about 250 feet long and 80 feet wide with a 9 feet thick walls blocks. The central altar is elaborately sculptured retablos of silver and hardwood in the florid style of Baroque art. The antique huge bell is surrounded by 8 smaller bells. The huge bell was made from 76 sacks of coins believed to have been contributed by the citizens of the town. It holds the record of being the biggest church bell in Asia and 2nd in the whole world. It is 7 feet in diameter and 10,400 kg. in weight. Still not convinced about this? Be captivated, visit the Captivating Capiz of the Philippines.

In 1566, Fray Martín de Rada is said to have preached the Gospel in Bamban (Pan-ay) and from there he proceeded to evangelize Dumangas to the south. The Augustinians continued to spread their net of evangelization to the south and west of Pan-ay until they had established footholds in the whole island. By the late 1500s, they had been had been the sole evangelizers of Panay island until the Jesuits arrived at this time.
