Considered as one of the oldest church in Bohol. I saw how it was destroyed. Without second thoughts, I went inside. Being a Catholic, I know the feeling of almost losing a part of our history. It is now being repaired. I will visit again...More

We stopped here shortly during our tour around Bohol. It was amazing to see the church and artifacts from hundreds of years ago. It is worth stopping if you are near. Also, they have very clean bathrooms!

An earthquake hit this region and destroyed the church, sadly there's not much to see here except scaffolding. It's a shame because I saw pictures before the earthquake and they were beautiful.

Probably one of the oldest church in Philippines but not much to see. Building is damaged and not well maintained, so place can be avoided if your on tight schedule.

Stopped here on our island tour. There is much construction and restoration going on from the earthquake but still plenty of things to see. A basic museum is inside the church, not a polished presentation but many old and interesting items from church history. I...More
