The church is called San Agustin Church, in honor of the patron saint of Iba.

San Agustin Church (cathedral) in filipino and Saint Agustine church (cathedral) in english. which everway is correct. it is located in Iba, Zambales that's why it is also called the Iba catholic church...thought there are two big catholic churches in iba, saint agustine is the one referred to as iba catholic church and the other one as the saint joseph catholic church.

The Church Bell Tower is not part of the original structure but was added after the japanese war (not sure about the date).

Before the Japanese war my uncle Ruben who was then a boy scout was ringing the church bell at the topmost facade of the church, suddenly his neckerchief caught the bell and fell down. He survive the fall with only a minor wound in his face.
