Earthquake hit this church and wiped it out pretty good. It's definitely cool to look at, although I do feel for everyone who used to attend it. It's probably the only time you'll get to see a beautiful building which looks to have been foot stomped by Godzilla, so I'd recommend stopping by.

Visited Loboc Church last May, 2013. The facade was the typical tripartite Boholano facade (with three arches) and there were two statues of saints in niches above the central piers. To my great misfortune (since the church came tumbling down in that devastating earthquake of October, 2013) this famous church was closed. Nevertheless, I took whatever pictures I can. The... More

Right now the church is in almost total ruin. It is a real pity. Whether they can rebuild it is up in the air, as the ancient technology and the materials they used are not well documented. It will be a matter of time before its fate is known. You should definitely visit it, as it is still very impressive.... More

The church suffered significantly during earthquake in October 2013. At the moment it's just huge ruins. The church must be really impressive and worth visiting in the past, but now the big part of it is destroyed. Of course you cannot to inside - area around is closed for public. According to our guide there are plans to rebuild it,... More

You can access this attraction by public bus (take the bus going to Carmen from Tagbilaran). If you have time to kill in Luzon, there is great fried chicken 5 mins walk up the road, the opposite direction as the river cruises.

My first time to see a big piped organ in Bohol. And it is in this church, St. Peter's Church in Loboc. An interesting find. They have also a pulpit stand and is still elegant and in tact. Usually some old churches do not have it this time. According to the informer, this was thought to be the first stone... More

If you are here in Loboc for the river cruise, this is definitely a nice place to stop by. Go to the Museo de Loboc, which is attached to the church and take a short tour, you will see many nice things and in some of the rooms there are bats flying around and hanging on the walls which is... More
