Classic design of buildings during the Spanish era...

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.

This convent is one of the most amazing I've seen. I knee that this is the largest covent in Asia and one of the oldest too. During my visit, the convent is under renovation so I can only stare it from the road section in front of the Lazi Church. I had some talks with the locals and told me... More

This was supposed to be part of our itinerary but there was an on going construction and tourists were not allowed to enter. The convent has a beautiful and interesting facade.

Sadly not much to look at or do here. Basically and oldish building with current renovations. The church across the road is quite nice though.

Located just across Lazi Church. Distinguished for being the oldest and once considered as the largest convent in Asia. Built thirty years after the Lazi Church (1857), the rickety building houses a school and a museum, but the artifacts were completely moved somewhere else during our visit to give way for its preemptive restoration. Nevertheless, the silence and mustiness of... More

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.

We were not able to enter since it's under renovation but still looks nice from the outside only. 14M maybe worth it to preserve this treasure. I'm looking forward in returning to see what's inside..

The convent was built between 1887-1891 as a rest house for ailing missionaries. Upstairs is host to a small but interesting museum, which has a few antiquities and memorabilia. It is already more than a hundred years old. There is an urgent need of attention from the provincial government under the tourism commission restoring its grandeur and beauty. We need... More

I just love to see nature and old buildings, hence, i kinda like the place since the setting of this scenario is a combination of both. When we were there, there was a photo shoot happening so we just stayed at the gate and marveled at the sight. It was in a secluded place good enough for convents. And since... More
