The town of Hermosa lies on the northern portion of the province of Bataan, Philippines about 100 kilometers from Manila. It can be reached within two hours by land from Manila through the North Luzon Expressway and about 45 minutes from Subic and an hour and a half from Clark. Historically, the town was established in 1756 by Dominican priests. It became an independent missionary center in 1756 with St. Peter de Verona as its patron saint.

St. Peter of Verona Parish Church of Hermosa, Bataan features a baroque-style façade with marvelous stained-glasses windows amid the splendor of the ornaments inside the church which illuminates the whole of Hermosa. The major retablo of Hermosa is made more attractive by the variations of saints placed in it amid its majestic dome. The church brings remembrance of the colonial past.
