This church lies in Taglibaran city and is truly an eye-catcher. It was built by the Spanish when they colonized the Philippines.

Baclayon church is second oldest church in the Philippines (the first one is in Manila). The church made from coral block which you can actually see coral on the wall. However, the interior is still under construction so we are not allowed to go inside....More

This church is under reconstruction and was a disappointment as access is limited and you cannot see much. It is not that exciting anyway,

Was only able to visit the adjoining museum as the church was being renovated. The contents of the museum were of little interest and did not, unfortunately, appear to be well-preserved.

It's always nice to pay homage to one of the oldest churches in Bohol. What more when the church has a miraculous spring. The church was closed when we visited as it was being fixed, but you can still take pictures outside.

It is a nice place to visit and take some photos. But I wish their museum will have more exciting guides to tour everybody around.

Considered as one of the oldest church in Bohol. I saw how it was destroyed. Without second thoughts, I went inside. Being a Catholic, I know the feeling of almost losing a part of our history. It is now being repaired. I will visit again...More
