Veneer

side view of the Church of San Juan del Monte (Pinaglabanan Church) in San Juan City The St. John the Baptist Parish Church, better known locally as Pinaglabanan Church after the street in San Juan City where it is located, dates back to 1896 but has been damaged, restored, renovated and expanded many times since then. Of the church's exterior, only the facade remains of the original structure, which is quite evident when the church is viewed from the side.

I probably wouldn't have even noticed the difference if you hadn't pointed it out but you can clearly see how the new attaches to the old. That's very interesting and unique, I think.

Love that blue sky!

Amazing detail, I like that some of the original was preserved despite numerous changes. Also, wonderful blue sky!

I'm glad they still have the original front facade. Very striking against that blue sky.
