This is one of the old church buildings built in the 1700s. There is a museum inside with an entrance fee of 50 pesos that shows old clothes of the priest, old hymnal books, bibles, and some ivory statues. The relics look old and dusty. They are poorly housed and very hot during summer.

I stopped here on a Bohol Island tour. What a beautiful old church. Definitely worth a look if in Bohol.

This church closes during mid day and quite early in the evening. make sure to check hours before going.

Otherwise, my impression? Very old.

I think they said this was the oldest church in Bohol province but I might be mistaken. But I do know this church is one of the few declared National Treasure. It has a very nice interior but most of decorations are kept away from the main hall due to earthquake back in 2013. Not so much to do there though, the church is still used for civil purposes so it’s quite awkward to run among the praying people taking pix..

First time I visited the church there was still the image of padre pio at the church of the facade but now it's no longer there. The interior of the church still looks good despite of the earthquake though it was a pity that didnt get the chance to see the museum again due to time constraints. People visitng Bohol must spare time to visit the church and museum as well.

It's a very old church that I understand suffered earthquake damage. It is still possible to go inside for a small fee and it's not far away from other attractions so not an inconvenient place to stop.

I only stopped here to take some pics as it is one of the oldest churches in the Philippines. Old church usually means old architecture which is always nice to check out. Ten minutes later and I was on my way.

Most tours of Bohol include a stop at this historic church. When we were there, the church was closed, nevertheless, the guide could tell us some Architectural and historical facts. For us, it was mainly a quick photo stop and stretch the legs.
