Basey pronounced "bah-sai", is a municipality in Western Samar, famous for its Eco-Tourism adventures in Sohotan. Also in this town, built by the Jesuits in the 17th century, is the church of San Miguel de Arcangel, the patron saint of Basey.
The bell tower still holds the bell forged in 1873. The church ceiling takes pride of a sketch of the triumph of San Miguel, defeating Lucifer.
San Miguel de Arcangel served the town of Basey during Philippine Liberation when it became a refuge camp. It was also served as Spanish Fortress during the early times. The church is strategically built uphill overlooking the San Pedro and San Pablo Bay.
