Well, I've seen larger, better restored and more imposing churches in my life. Yet this old church takes you on a very special spiritual and historical journey. Constructed early in the Christianisation days of the Philippines and reconstructed over and over again after natural catastrophes...More

As someone who isn't religious, I don't spend a lot of time in Churches, nor am I usually that particularly interested in visiting them, but I was very pleased to have this added to the tour; it's a lovely old building which has been restored...More

The Building was damaged and has undergone maintainence to reembelish the lost features, though it looks so poorly done though with cheap finishes. Leaves you wondering what could have been an amazing site is just left with all so little to cherish. Not worth visiting.

Visited this very old church and I believe it is one of the oldest stone churches in the Philippines. It has been repaired after the quake in 2013 and although a dim type of church, it is worth a visit. Probably spend around thirty minutes...More

If you're visiting Baclayon Church you'll have to visit the seaside area as well. You'll get the best view of the church on that area since it's located near the road.

Gotvto see this church as part of a Bohol tour. This church built in 1727, has been restored after the 2013 earthquake. The ceiling panels are beautiful. The replacement stained glass windows while simple, add a reverance to the church. This is still an active...More

Following the devastating 2013 earthquake, this wondeful National Historic Monument Jesuit-founded Catholic Church of 1595 has undergone what I was informed was a P100 million restoration. The nave, altar and friezes are great. It is calm inside. Even though I had visited the ecclesiastical museum...More

If you love historical monuments, this place might be a must see for you. The place allows FREE entry during mass, which may annoy the locals, but allows for you to take a quick zip round the front and observe the interior at the rear...More
