As written on the landmark plaque ...
Paete was founded in 1580 by the Rev. Juan de Placensia. Its Stone Church and its Convent, built in 1646, were ruined before 1717. The Rev. Francisco de la Fuente, O.F.M. constructed a stronger church in 1717, which was later destroyed by the earthquake of 1880. The church which the Rev. Pedro Galiano, O.F.M. built in 1884 was destroyed by the earthquake of August 30, 1937.
