The legacy of Saint Anthony the Abbot Parish Church dates back to 1763, when Villasis was still a “visita”of Malasiqui. The Parish Church’s façade is concrete painted in white with faint red accents. Inside the Church’s sanctuary, sacred images of St. Anthony, Mother Mary and Jesus Christ can be found. The Church’s current building was restored in 1954 after being destroyed during the World War II. At present, the Church is an integral part of devoted Catholics’ holy pilgrimage all through the Lenten Season.
