 This is the third card from Magin, showing Miag-ao Church in Philippines. On the back of the card it is printed: "Miag-ao Church officially known as Santo Tomas de Villanueva is a prime example of Philippine rococo style. Church resembling fortress dates back to 1787 and is included in the Unesco's world heritage list."
Magin also writes: "Miag-ao church is one of the most beautiful churches in Philippines. Majority of the Philippinos are Roman Catholics, so churches abound in every town. In my hometown, Cebu, the most popular church is the Basilica del Santo Nino."

She also tells me that the stamps were issued by Philpost as a tribute to Galeon Andalucia, which visited Philippines last month.
