The municipality of Bayambang is eyeing another Guinness world record.
The Saint Vincent Ferrer Catholic Church’s planned 51-meter monument of the its patron saint is being eyed as the world’s tallest icon.
This will make the statue taller than the Statue of Liberty in the United States.

“This is a church project in line with the 400th year founding anniversary of our parish and 600th year death anniversary of Saint Vincent Ferrer,” Saygo said.
“The local government unit is just helping in the promotion of this project of the church and it was planned that it will be an entry to the Guinness Book of World Records,” he added.
Bayambang holds the Guinness world record for the longest barbecue in the world.
