This church hosts Senor Sto. Nino (Baby Jesus), the Patron of the Sinulog Festival. If you want to get to know the historical religious origin of the said festival. Lots of people also flock here to show their devotion the Baby Jesus.

It’s interesting and historic. Unless you are a devout follower, go see it for its place in 500 year Christian history/oppression of the Philippines. If you are devout you’ll probably have a ball.
