Now, St. Peter of Verona Church is one of the most celebrated churches of Bataan.
The creativity and artistry of the Diocese of Balanga are evident in this church. This church features a baroque-style fa├žade with marvelous stained-glasses that help encourage a more profound devotion to the parishioners. The splendor of the ornaments inside the church illuminates the whole of Hermosa.

Our Catholic Churches may bring remembrance of our colonial past, being colonized by the Spaniards for more than 300 years. But all the more, sight of the churches graces us with a mere feeling of guidance and helps us achieve the state of being high in spirit.
