Immaculate Conception Parish Church, Concepcion, Tarlac
Kapampangan Heritage Church
This church is the most intact and oldest remaining Kapampangan Heritage Church of the province of Tarlac.
This church was built in 1880 in the original Baroque style under the supervision of Father Guillermo Masnou but was renovated to its present Neo-Romanesque style in 1893 under the supervision of Father Fernando Vasquez.
Its facade is said to be identical to that of the pre-war church of Tarlac City which was destroyed. Its facade has a striking red brick exterior while its two three-tiered bell towers give the church symmetry.
The Kapampangan town of Concepcion in Tarlac province and its church are named after the Immaculate Conception which is the town’s patron saint. Another Kapampangan town that shares the same patron saint and named church is Guagua, Pampanga.
