About Simbahan blog

Philippine Church Facades book
Philippine Church Facades Pedro Galende, OSA San Agustin Museum 2007. My first commissioned book project where I was principal photographer after I have been documenting Philippine heritage churches.

The original Simbahan blog started in June 19, 2007 as a website devoted to my interest in Philippine religious heritage architecture. At that time, I have been documenting Philippine heritage churches that got me commissioned as one of the principal photographers of my first coffee table book, Philippine Church Facades.

In the past years, I’ve been mulling of streamlining the blogs that I have maintained and perhaps incorporating it into my main site, stancabigas.com. Early last year, 2022, I took down the domain but still retained the WordPress database as well as a backup of the site’s files.

Simbahan blog version 2

Fast forward this month, April, 2023, I revived Simbahan blog as a subdomain of my main site. In the next few months, I will be posting slowly a selection of posts from the previous site as well as probably add additional content. But this time, it would cover a broader subject on religious architecture and related structures.

This will still be a trial period and will see what happens in the next few months.
