The Church of Miagao, a town about 3o mins from Iloilo City in the Philippines is part of the Unesco World Heritage Site. "Its unique features include the unusual Aztec like bas-relief in the façade depicting St. Christopher carrying the baby Jesus through a tropical forest. The adobe used in building the church is made from silt and clay that can only be found in this part of Iloilo, giving the building a unique warm-yellowish glow.
