A bit of history, a side of local food

The locale provides a reminder of the Spanish conquistadores' strong influence in Filipino religion, education, and cooking. Well-preserved building and well-kept vegetation... read more

Nice for photo op, but not really a "must see" place. but since Siquijor is a small town, you might actually pass by this area going to other attractions.

The locale provides a reminder of the Spanish conquistadores' strong influence in Filipino religion, education, and cooking. Well-preserved building and well-kept vegetation. Around the corner from the convent, you'll find a colorful turo-turo (literally point-point) where customers point to their choices among the dishes cooked for the day. Love this particular one, Jenoshanise, that served cheap ($2 for rice, viand... More

The convent is situated in the town of Lazi and right across from the St Isidore de Labrador Church. It's worth a few minutes walking around it and grabbing a few photos. It appears to now be a school and inside upstairs there is a museum. However this was closed when we visited. But it was interesting to see the... More

Good thing it is well kept and maintained and is already under the national Historical Institute. The church has seen better days but the external structure is a magnificent edifice to soak in. The grounds are spacious and the trees along the road lend it a very nostalgic touch.

You can tell just by it's appearance it has withstood time and calamities...A well preserved convent/ It even has a museum but we didn't get to see it because it was closed at the time we went there.

I only like the soroundings of the church and the old bell tower made of stone. Nice to have picture in it having the church as the background. Still nice and peaceful.

The church has good view. It is the oldest convent in Asia having celebrated their centenarian about 2004? I think. Upstairs you can see how old the convent is and is still maintained by the parish priests. No more nuns in the convent. Just in front of the convent is the Lazi Church as well. The Convent is surrounded by... More

It looked majestic from the outside -- didn't get to go inside as it was a weekend. Nevertheless, it was worth the trip. :) I went by myself, but my awesome tour guide / trike driver / photographer / friend, Kuya Allan captured every moment on my cam and iphone. He's so trustworthy, I even gave him my phone's passcode.... More
