San Juan Bautista Parish Church, locally referred to as Calumpit Church, is a 17th-century, Roman Catholic, baroque church. Calumpit is recognized as the first site of the evangelization by the Augustinian Order in Northern Luzon. The façade is an example of how local artisans experimented with various ornamentation to come up with a lavish, seemingly Mannerist style.

The bahay na bato used to be the old municipio in the 19th-century formerly owned by the family of the revolutionary Dr. Joaquin Gonzalez, the first rector of the Universidad Cientifica Literaria de Filipinas in 1898, and one of two representatives of the province of Pampanga in the 1898 Malolos Congress.

The Saint Augustine Parish Church commonly known as Baliwag Church was established by the Augustinians in 1733 under the patronage of Saint Augustine of Hippo. Its architectural style is Baroque as evidenced by the facade and interiors. Its massive reredos and complex work of art reflect the Spanish and Latin American architecture integration with indigenous Philippine art.
