Beautiful inside, and out. They have a museum where you cannot take photos. They have a souvenir shop at the end of the museum tour. This is a must-see for everyone. I love this church. Make sure you're wearing pants, or long skirts when entering.

Stopped here as part of a day tour and was introduced to Rita who provides tours of the church, the oldest on the island of Bohol. We recalled the 2013 earthquake that partially destroyed the main part of the church and devastated the bell tower,...More

As a Catholic living in a country with the opportunity to visit a different church every day of the year it takes a lot to impress me. From the outside the church looks quite unassuming and I wasn't expecting much but how wrong was I!...More

All the tours want you to stop here but don’t, just drive past and you will see it. Yes it looks pretty but it’s just another church. Also it is currently being renovated at the moment

One of many stops in a larger tour around Bohol. A really impressive church and paying the small entrance fee to see the museum and garden behind the church is definitely worth it, even though a bit more information and history in the museum would...More

We stopped here as part of a Bohol tour. We started with the museum which was really interesting. It has quite a lot of historical items and relics. The area was all wooden and felt ancient. Unfortunately, the church was being renovated so we weren't...More

The church was great and amazing as we saw the ancient scriptures of the kings and queens. There were several souvenirs. The sculptures of the kings and queens seemed attractive it felt like a story was built.

It could be because the place is now under construction, but also otherwise I believe there is nothing special to see really. Especially for a european person, since almost any church in Europe is more special than this one (no offence :) ) .
