Perfect example of the Spanish occupation of the Philippines. I've seen exactly the same in Mexico. I bought some candles right inside the door, then you go through building to light them outside. Different from lighting candles at the altar. We'll worth a visit to feel the Spanish influence.

It's 11 kms from Sta Fe. You can take a motorbike or a bike there (If you're up for a workout). They let me go up the bell tower, kuya was very nice to let me.

Beautiful architecture. Stained glass windows. The present church about 150 years old. But long history dating back to 1580. Destroyed before by the Moros who also took 700 slaves. Worth a visit definitely.

One of the best examples of the Spanish church influence in the Philippines. Not being a religious person myself, but still enjoyed the tranquil feeling of this church.

The church is a blend of Spanish architecture and local culture. Built with coral rocks, the walls have an uneven texture that's unique in its style. The stain glass of is usual like in European cathedrals, except that the art work and colors on the glass is more Filipino in style. The church survived a bomb that was dropped on... More

Always bring school groups from Australia to this church. Although they are young Australians they appreciate it

It would be a good idea to hear mass even when you are on vacation. You can't have a vacation from your prayers.

Got off from the bus at Bantayan. This church is just right across the bus stop. We were lucky enough to get there while mass was ongoing so I was able to take a picture inside with a good light. They immediately turn off the lights after the mass. This almost 500-year old church is a must to see.
