This old curch has great lighting. Good for selfie, groupie or pictorial. It has natural light that illuminates along the old chuch facade. Buy a candle from the local vendor and make a wish

This a Spanish era church with the classic design architecture of that era. A solemn place perfect for those wanting to slow down a bit and reflect during their Siquijor trip.

The Convent is located across the street of Lazi Church. Its stone structure is massive and reflected the era when it was built.. during the Spanish regime.
