Philippine Registry of Cultural Property (PRECUP) updated 08/24/2011
It's time to update the Philippine Registry of Cultural Property (PRECUP). Today, we got the latest list from the Cultural Properties Division of the National Museum. While they've declared several movable heritage objects, this list I'm compiling only includes built heritage.
The additions to the list include new National Cultural Treasures declared from late 2010 to present: Nuestra Senora de la Luz Parish Church Complex (Loon, Bohol), Immaculada Concepcion Parish Church (Baclayon, Bohol) both National Historical Landmarks, Tabon Cave Complex (Quezon, Palawan), Spanish Era Colonial Bridges of Tayabas: Alitao, Isabel II, Francisco de Asis, Gibanga, Malagonlong, Lakawan, Mate, Ese, Despedida, and Tuloy (Tayabas, Quezon); Watchtowers of Bohol: Maribojoc, Dauis, Panglao, Pamilacan, Loay, and Balilihan; San Nicolas de Tolentino Parish and Ermita Ruins (Dimiao), San Sebastian Basilica (Manila) also a National Historical Landmark, Santa Monica Church (Minalin), and the Shrine Parish of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Complex (Dauis) also a National Historical Landmark.
For Important Cultural Property, there is one new declaration, the Parish Church of San Salvador del Mundo (Caraga, Davao Oriental).
