The marker of the Bosoboso Church that tells its history:

First erected as a mission church of the Jesuits in the year 1700 and placed under the patronage of the Nuestra Señora de la Anunciata, its administration was transferred to the secular priests in 1768. Damaged by earthquake in June 18, 1880. Vacated in 1930 to give way to the proposed construction of a dam. The people returned to Boso-boso when the dam was not constructed. The church was destroyed by fire in 1943 and was restored in 1995 through the generosity of parishioners.

I remember a science lesson in the third grade when our teacher told us that with old buildings, it is not uncommon for seeds of plants to be carried by the wind, rains or birds and left in cracks in old walls. I suppose that a 300-year-old church is old enough to have trees growing off its walls.
