The structure itself is impressive and as it is less than 0.5km from the pier where you get off the boat an easy walk, it's worth seeing as a decent photo opportunity. However the lack of a plaque/information about the church (there is one in Latin) makes you feel it could be so much more if information was provided.

This will be the warm opening feature of Siquijor island if you are docking in Siquijor port. It is around 5 minutes away from the seaport and this has been one of the most photographed spots in the island. At a glance the church emits a strong Colonial vibe, giving you a glimpse of the Colonial era was like. Amazingly,... More

Since the Bohol earthquake and devastating hurricanes have destroyed so many colonial churches, the remaining churches like St. Francis de Assisi take on even more historical importance. I spent a pleasant hour walking in and around the church, which is located close to the dock where the fast boats arrive and depart.

Classic church but the inside has been repainted. Stands in a notably iconic style structure that churches in Siquijor come in. Churches in Lazi and Maria districts maintain a more old-world feel though a bit more dilapidated.

It'll be the first and last tourist spot you see when you arrive and leave Siquijor since it's just in front of the Siquijor port.

This church is also a must see. It is located at the capital of the island, Siquijor. It's near also from the wharf. The church is big which is built up with stones. It reflects the culture and history of the island. Near the church situated the belfry. A nice place to take photos also. The place is calm and... More

Fast passenger boats that hail from Dumaguete dock at the Siquijor wharf. A few meters from the wharf is the St Francis de Assisi Church. It is made of stone as what churches built by the Spaniards in the 1500s to 1600s are. Nearby is its belfry.

While this church dominates the town, I thought that the highlight was the religious museum across the road with its display of vestments, statues, chalices and other items of note to Catholics. You enter via the school entrance across from the belfry. Aparently they need airconditioning to preserve the vestments, so please give a donation is you are so inclined.... More
