This is essentially a very old church which was destroyed by the earthquake. requires 50php to enter. It is made like a museum showcasing history and statues of Saints lined on the side of the hallway. No pictures are allowed expect for the main facade of the old church. Candles can be bought for 5php. Would recommend closing this for... More

By the time we went there, the church is under construction as it was greatly affected by the earthquake 2 years ago. If you will go here, you will be only allowed to visit the altar and the museum found beside the church.

Most of the churches are destroyed by the typhoons and there are no funds to undertake renovations, so everything is in full decline. If you've been to Europe and hope for some interesting architecture, don't bother with the churches here. Nature and sea are what's great about the Philippines, so forget the churches and go to the beach.

Writing this review only now would be different as it is now due to the typhoon that struck the island. Our tour include visiting Baclayon Church. One of the oldest church in the Philippines.You also get a glimpse of Fr Pio's stain on the wall.

Still undergoing renovation after its massive destruction after the earthquake of 2013. It is good to visit and pay respect inside the church through donation or entrance fees as they will definite bring the church back to its old form. It is known to be one of the oldest Catholic churches in the Philippines. The view opposite the church is... More

"You can't touch anything or take a picture" It may sound so negative but I agree that things preserve in this church must not be touched with our bear hands or even try capture a photo. There were scientific explanations why we can't and in order for you to know it, visit the church, someone will explain it to you,... More

I was traveling w/ a friend who had seen the church before it was destroyed by the earthquake and she said it was beautiful back then. Alright, I didn't see the beauty, but I'm not complaining because it was nature that did the damage. The remaining portion and the altar are really old and ancient and still beautiful. I just...

I love this church when we went here year 2012. I love the architecture and design, The inisde have a small museum very interesting I must add. We went here again this year but sadly it was ruined by the earthquake. I am glad that they are restoring it though.

I enjoyed the tour on this old Church. They also have a mini museum inside that features the brief history of the Church for the past few decades. I really like their stained glass and great architectural structures.
