St. Peter Parish Church also known as St. Peter the Apostle or San Pedro Apostol is a 16th century old Church located in a small town of Apalit, Pampanga in Central Luzon. It has neo-renaissance design resembling classical Europe. It belongs to the archdiocese of San Fernando by Archbishop Florentino Lavarias.

The Church is most identified by it’s cupola or dome and eye-catching mural paintings on it’s ceiling. The most notableĀ  artwork can be found in the dome which depict an Apocalypse.

I was not able to take a photo of the Church’s interior since there was an ongoing Eucharistic celebration that time. Read More »
