St Peter's Church is severely damaged by the earthquake and none can enter. I'm pretty sure it was a great church previously. Since we'd skipped the Loboc Buffet Boat, we'd stopped at the town to have a local lunch. Just a small shop facing the church about 150 meters away. Food pretty good and cheap too!

We stopped here to take photos. The church was nearly destroyed (really is destroyed since you can't go in) during October 2013 earthquake. The ceiling has some great paintings, but difficult to see. Interesting stop.

Ruined right in the middle by 2013 earthquake, it was tearjerking seeing the church from Loboc River Cruise boat. Had it not been destroyed, the church represents one of the age-old churches built during the early colonization of the Spaniards. Made of corals and cemented by limestones and egg whites, of course, it will not withstand calamities after a long... More

Though I have been to Bohol 2 times but this is the first time I wanted to see the church. It is in ruins and I did not any restoration work going on. I wonder why the government, is not doing anything to restore it. Every building of such age is an asset to the country. No wonder there are... More

Loboc Church is the more popular name of the St. Peter the Apostle Church. Unfortunately, it was one of the many churches in Bohol province that were severely damaged by the October 2013 earthquake. It is only in this regard that I rank it as "terrible". A heartrending sight really especially if you have seen it before it was destroyed.... More

Sadly this is how it looks now. It is painful to look at it and it has been sealed off. If there are plans to reconstruct this church, it would take so much to rebuild it in my opinion. It is severely devastated.

Set alongside the Loboc River and across from the dock for the river buffet cruises, St Peter's Church must have been an incredibly impressive structure before the earthquake of 2013 saw the middle of the revered church fall away. The church is now in two parts and in ruins. We were informed it won't be rebuilt due to cost. One... More

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
