Bombon Parish Church and the Leaning Bell Tower

Bombon Parish Church is an old church that was constructed by Fray dela Torre; its completion was done by another missionary in the person of Rev. Fr. Jose Ribaya. Noted along with this church is its leaning bell tower which is said to be likened with the leaning tower of Pisa in Italy. According to stories, this leaning structure of the belfry made the townspeople want to destroy it. However, the parish priest insisted his parishioners to leave the tower as it is and continued working on it until it was finished.
