Similar to the yellow color of the sun rays used as fences, this church’s facades are also colored, yellow.

This church and the plaza located across the street are truly Guimbal’s famous attractions.

After visiting Miagao Church from Iloilo City, we called into Guimbal Church.

The church is impressive old church and a 17th century church made out of adobe and coral stones giving its yellowish colour.

In front of the church is a beautiful park.

There vare several churches to visit in the area if visiting the famous Miagio Church.

On the way to the well-known UNESCO Miagao Church, we happily saw this additional older church and stopped there on the way back to Iloilo. It's yet another beauty in the realm of Philippine churches.

The Guimbal Church is one of the oldest churches in the country. This yellow sandstone church is made made from adobe stones called igang and coral stones quarried from Guimaras . It was built in 1774 by Father Campos.

The facade is two-stories, flanked by twinned round pilasters that are decorated with floral carvings. The belfry is 4 stories high and doubled as a watchtower to warn against pillaging Moro pirates. The church has undergone some reconstruction after damage sustained during the Second World War and also from the 1948 earthquake. Recently, it was rehabilitated to its original structure.

The exterior carvings, massing, and coloration are very attractive and the view from the adjacent park is inspiring. Definitely worth a stop and a pleasant place to relax and enjoy the local atmosphere.

We visited this after Miag-ao church. It is smaller and less grand. It just pales in comparison to the church in Miag-ao. We stayed only for a few minutes.

This church is a wonderful church dedicated to St Nicolas of Tolentino. It is one of the oldest churches in the Philippines with construction dating from 1769 to 1774. The walls of the church are made of adobe stone and coral with sandstone on the main west front. Take a look and you will carefully see the coral in the walls. The church was badly damaged by the earthquake of 1948, and has been lovingly restored since. The Church overlooks a very impressive plaza, with none other than Rizal as the centre landmark.

A grotto to the Virgin Mary is besides the church. this can be reached by public transport from Iloilo, and is a midway stop off on the way to Miagao - the nearby UNESCO Heritage site.

We wanted to visit the Church, but we were not able to get in as it was closed on a Saturday. We took photos outside the church, but had to leave as it was too hot.

The Guimbal Church looks it has been through tough times, Despite its beautiful front and its solid side walls, the interior is simple with its new roof and altar.

This Church is near to my home town. But every time I passed by I am always amazed by its historical significance.
