Public Opening and Lecture of Las Iglesias de Tierra Roja: Heritage Churches of the Cagayan Valley Region

In celebration of the Museums and Galleries Month 2022 and in partnership with the research of noted scholar, Dr. Javier Galvan Guijo, we are pleased to present “Las Iglesias de Tierra Roja: Heritage Churches of the Cagayan Valley Region” at the National Museum of Anthropology. 

This exhibition highlights the built heritage and enduring artistry of the churches of the Cagayan Valley, including features of archival drawings, architectural documentation, material samples, and exposition on the designs, traditions, and legacies of religious art and architecture in the country. We believe this to be a fitting venue to present to the nation the realities of architectural research that contributes to upholding and preserving unwavering monuments to Philippine-Spanish history and Filipino heritage and identity. 

And together with the exhibition opening, we are inviting attendees to a special lecture by Dr. Javier Galvan Guijo, providing an overview of Philippine built heritage during the Spanish colonial period in Northeastern Luzon. The lecture event will be held on Wednesday, October 26th, 2022 at the Ayala Hall located on the second floor of the National Museum of Anthropology, and will be concurrently streamed live via Zoom.
