“Side trip ..”
Review of Navalas Church

Ranked #575 of 1,331 things to do in Visayas
Reviewed 26 August 2014

It was a company team building, after we checked out at the resort
we had this as one of our side trips.

The caretaker said it dates back to 1880, you can see the evidence
by those big limestone pillars and altar. It's on a hilly portion and ice fields
as a background. Good for photo ops too.

No entrance, hey it's a church! should be none :)

The old stone Navalas Church of Navalas, Buenavista on the northern part of Guimaras island-province is the only existing Spanish heritage church in the island...It is enclosed by some sort of a stone fortress with a wide watch tower/bell tower as its gate....As we approached its gate we were awed by the wide greenery surrounding the church....The atmosphere is both serene, silent and secluded..the area being surrounded by rice fields and tall trees...there were very few houses nearby (its true to the rest of the island)....If somebody needs solitude to meditate and pray, I guess this would be the place..............We hired a tricycle to reach the place from the town of Jordan..its about a 30 minute ride along well;-paved roads and wide open fields and forested areas....
