Monument ‘taller than Statue of Liberty’ to be revealed in Pangasinan

A 51-meter statue of St. Vincent, lauded to be higher than the Statue of Liberty in New York and the Christ the Redeemer statue in Sao Paolo, Brazil, will strive to make it in the Guinness World Records as the world’s tallest St. Vincent Ferrer statue once it is uncovered next month in Bayambang, Pangasinan.

The monument will be unveiled during the 405th anniversary of Bayambang, a town at the southern tip of Pangasinan and was the fifth capital of the Philippines during the first Philippine Republic under the revolutionary government of Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo.

The soon-to-be iconic monument will stand in Saint Vincent Ferrer Prayer Park, the first part of the sprawling 67-hectare new town center of Bayambang.
