Molo Church by Dennis Natividad · 365 Project.

Molo Church features a two-level facade that makes use of the texture of the stone to enhance the distinct Gothic-Renaissance elements apparent in the stucture. A strong vertical movement makes the church seem lean to the eye from most angles and is enforced by the tapering arrangement at the center composed of the arched main portal, an arched stained glass window, a circular motif and a small saint’s niche at the pediment. This movement is echoed by the bell towers that flank the facade, each topped by elaborate spires. The church has three naves, lit through shallow arches that provide a solemn, diffused glow.It is is flanked by two bell towers and these hold thirty bells of different sizes. These create a pleasing, multi-layered tolling when sounded simultaneously.
