It is a nice welcoming attraction. The facade was nicely decorated to welcome tourists. The bell tower is placed far from the church. The area is open to see the best view of the church.

If you need to attend mass as soon as you arrive, it's right off the port. There are also diners nearby. It's right behind the Welcome to Siquijor sign, and you really wouldn't miss it. Not much to see. We were about to enter but there was a wake that was arriving, so we had to leave.

Nice old christian church - I have no more to say about it. We've been there just for few minutes. Tower close to this church was also nice.

This is the very first church you will see when you arrive at siquijor port. Its a very beautiful back drop design of the welcome sign of siquijor. It only means one thing that people here embrace their religion and that siquijor is a well protected place. Despite of the myths of supernatural, siquijor is a very beautiful place. This... More

The structure itself is impressive and as it is less than 0.5km from the pier where you get off the boat an easy walk, it's worth seeing as a decent photo opportunity. However the lack of a plaque/information about the church (there is one in Latin) makes you feel it could be so much more if information was provided.

This will be the warm opening feature of Siquijor island if you are docking in Siquijor port. It is around 5 minutes away from the seaport and this has been one of the most photographed spots in the island. At a glance the church emits a strong Colonial vibe, giving you a glimpse of the Colonial era was like. Amazingly,... More

Since the Bohol earthquake and devastating hurricanes have destroyed so many colonial churches, the remaining churches like St. Francis de Assisi take on even more historical importance. I spent a pleasant hour walking in and around the church, which is located close to the dock where the fast boats arrive and depart.

Classic church but the inside has been repainted. Stands in a notably iconic style structure that churches in Siquijor come in. Churches in Lazi and Maria districts maintain a more old-world feel though a bit more dilapidated.

It'll be the first and last tourist spot you see when you arrive and leave Siquijor since it's just in front of the Siquijor port.
