There is a lot of churches in Ilocos Norte. Most of them are old and historical. But beyond those infamous places, this church in Badoc catches new attraction in the province.

La Virgen Milagrosa Chapel

Badoc houses the Sanctuary of the Miraculous Statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the La Virgen Milagrosa. History traces the life-sized statue to Nagasaki, Japan.
It was sent floating in the sea by missionaries operating in secret in Japan (for fear of persecution during the Tokugawa Regime), along with the Miraculous Statue of the Black Nazarene (Sinait’s Santo Cristo Milagroso).

It was first found by local fishermen in
 the shores of Barangay Dadalaquiten, on the boundary between Sinait and Badoc, in the year 1620.
Only fishermen from Sinait were able to move the Statue of the Black Nazarene. The fishermen from Badoc, unable to move the Black Nazarene, were able to move the La Virgen Milagrosa that came with it–which was, in turn, unable to be moved by the fishermen from Sinait.
They took the statues to their respective towns, hence becoming their patron saints. Today The La Virgen Milagrosa is enshrined at the Badoc Church.

The chapel was was built last December 2013. Compare to other churches in Ilocos, this one stands along the beach.
Another uncommon things with this chapel are:its altar is made from a huge rock and seashells and the podium and chairs are made from wood.
NOTE: Don't be confused it with La Virgen Milagrosa De Badoc - this one is located in Badoc town proper.
