Good church, we maximize the side of the church since there is a wedding. But it did not stop us from taking photos and it is really good. Passing thru it is still a good place.

Sadly closed for a funeral when we visited but the exterior is very pretty and well worth a visit. One of the loveliest churches I’ve seen in the Phillipines.

Only open on Sundays. Closed when we spent ₱3500 on a tour to go see it. You would never tell that it had been restored as it looked like nothing has happened to it from the outside in the car park.

This church built of sea coral stones in 1727, is one of oldest in the Philippines and also one of the first churches built by the Jesuits. A part of its façade was damaged by a 7.2 magnitude earthquake in 2013 and I'm glad that they have fully restored the structure, allowing visitors to once again admire its beauty and structure. Adjacent to it is a small museum where some liturgical vestments, books and other objects, as well as images of saints, are on display.

After all the ravaging of nature and time, Baclayon Church survived them all. It still captures me with its vintage beauty and reminds you of how nostalgic this place is.

Its still very much a place to visit and not to forget when in Bohol.

we gate-crashed a wedding when we visited this church on our way back to tagbilaran. the belfry was damaged during the 2013 earthquake but it has since been repaired. the look after the innovation, however, does not justify the original majestic appearance of this baroque church that i first saw 20 years ago.

this place of worship will make you feel like you're in a time machine. the interiors will blow you away by its artistic design, stained glass windows, spacious area, intrinsic tiled floors, among others.

worth visiting when you're in bohol.

Just went here and charged 200 peso for two, to enter from the two ladies at the desk who issued a ticket.. Found out next day that the fee is only 50 peso.
Even in the church they scam tourist.

Baclayon church is a beautiful seaside church with plenty to see. The 300 year old retablo and newer ceiling paintings are works of Filipino craftsmanship and artistic prowess.

A visit to one of the oldest churches in the country is now included in the Bohol countryside tour. No expenses here unless you want to buy from people plying candle services or some food or ice cream.

This is one of the old church buildings built in the 1700s. There is a museum inside with an entrance fee of 50 pesos that shows old clothes of the priest, old hymnal books, bibles, and some ivory statues. The relics look old and dusty. They are poorly housed and very hot during summer.
