The parish museum is in three sections with the vestments of the priests handmade by local ladies among the many items on display along with beautiful chalices and other necessaries for celebration...

An old church at the southern part of Cebu. A visit here will give you an impression of how Philippines is doing in the time of Spanish occupation. A simple designed church but still sturdy as of this time. Clean and you may see the wide area maintained and the green grass well. A history lover will be delighted at... More

Cameras are not allowed inside the museum. You'll need to pay 20.00php for the entrance and the tour guide that would also include a brief tour around the church's vicinity. First room of the museum is all about the old church relics that were used before. Dating back to the spanish period, different religious artifacts are preserved here. On the... More

This museum might be small but it would give you a nice glimpse of the past and how rich Boljoon's history is. A great stop.

The Church which is located just along the highway should never be missed. The Church is a National Cultural Teeasure and rightfully so. Also visit the Parish Museum which is on the left. Early morning and afternoons can be spent on the benches surrounding the church and just see life pass by in Boljoon.
