The church has beautiful stone walls. The altar is simple and elegant. There is a "secret" view deck which allows you to see the islands of Culion. Two Spanish canons are positioned on this view deck.

What a beautiful old church! The view of the ocean adds to the feeling of serenity and beauty. The locals were so friendly.
