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

We stopped here shortly during our tour around Bohol. It was amazing to see the church and artifacts from hundreds of years ago. It is worth stopping if you are near. Also, they have very clean bathrooms!

An earthquake hit this region and destroyed the church, sadly there's not much to see here except scaffolding. It's a shame because I saw pictures before the earthquake and they were beautiful.

Badly hit by the earthquake of 2013, tourists will only be able to view the museum. As with most museums in the country, this one badly needs assistance from the national government, private donors, etc to maintain the building itself, and the items within. Still...More

First point of travel, there's a museum next to the church that doesn't allow visitors to take photos which I fairly understood. There were lots of relics inside and some information also about the church. If you're someone who loves history this place would be...More

Probably one of the oldest church in Philippines but not much to see. Building is damaged and not well maintained, so place can be avoided if your on tight schedule.
