The Immaculate Conception Church of Jasaan also known as Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de la Inmaculada Concepción de María is inspired by the baroque style of architecture. It is strategically located at Poblacion, Upper Jasaan, Misamis Oriental. The Church was built in year 1887 under the supervision of a Jesuit priest named Father Juan Herras. According to historians, the Church was an attempt to copy the famous San Ignacio Church of Intramuros, Manila.
