Historical place in the process of rebuilding

Old church hit hard by the earthquake and on the process of restoring it. You will also see the museum beside the church where you can check the artifacts about the church.

This used to be a large church, but recently damaged due to the quake. There's the church on the ground floor and you can go upstairs to the museum area. Our tour guide refused to go upstairs with us to the museum area, because well he claimed he had a "third" eye and felt "uncomfortable!" But that didn't stop us... More

If you're into churches and historical sites this is for you! Just walking by the church makes you go back in time. There's also an area there that you can visit and its very creepy in a good way.

So much history in this earthquake damaged building which is under restoration. Very beautiful and I guess when they finish the renovation will come back to its original glory. Has lot of positive energy, must go place.

This church is not far from Tagbilaran. It's a very historic and beautiful old Spanish church, however it was severely damaged during the great earthquake a couple of years back. It's still well worth a visit.

Located on the road to the Chocolate Hills from Tagbilaran airport or Panglao Island (Tagbilaran East Road), this 18th century coral stones church (also known as The Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary Parish Church) was completed in 1727. The quandrangular watchtower, which was also the church's bell tower, was finished in 1777, and still has the six out of... More

Its sad to see the Baclayon Church partly in ruins. However, with the scaffolding up, it just means that repair and rebuilding is on its way. Masses are held in an area on the side of the church. This church is on the road from Panglao to Chocolate Hills. Nothing much to see with the rebuilding going on.

Its a shame that the Baclayon Church is closed for now since the earthquake. Wooden fences cordon the area from would-be visitors. The church building has suffered extensive damage and no one is allowed to enter.
