The Sta. Maria Church was built in around 1765 by the Augustinians. The church is nestled on top of a hill andmay be reached by climbing 85 steps of granite rock that was imported from China. The thick buttresses on each side functions as protection from earthquakes. The architecture of the church is Baroque inspired.

Sta. Maria Church or the Asunta Parish church is a national landmark that was used as a fortress during the 1896 Revolution. It is located in Ilocos Sur. It was declared a world heritage site by UNESCO on 11 December 1993
