This is a nice stop over when you're strolling around Bohol. The church is still under renovation and hoping they will preserve the beauty of this church.

Must have been a great church before the earthquake. There are a lot of 'images' on the walls of the church but other than that, nothing special.

This place was very damaged by the earthquake in 2013. It was one of the first stops I had for a 3 day tour and it was worth the time.

The church was greatly affected by the earthquake. It was under renovation but visitors were still allowed to go around the church and check out the ruins. The small museum on the second was open for public viewing

The church is open to visitors - interesting and worth a quick stop over. Some interesting artifacts in the museum upstairs - a guide is helpful.

This church is closed off to the public at present as it has suffered greatly from the earthquakes. There are remnants of interesting architecture.
