Located right across the Lazu Church. Even bigger than the church. Grounds are well maintained though building is really old.

The convent had that historical and hispanic feel to it when you go inside. It will feel like you went back in time. The interiors which are made of wood is great for photos. It would be better though if there were guides to explain the history and significance of the convent.

Seeing the old convent brought me back to old era. The trees surrounding the convent completed the picturesque scenery.

As we are arriving in the church and convent, the view is exceptionally beautiful. I can see huge old trees on the road. A sign the locals did preserved the place. It's also clean and the air is so refreshing. The church stood still after how many years had passed. Seeing it feels like i'm going back to history. But... More

i wish they'd spend money on this site for restorations. looking at it from outside, it looks marvelous. i was kind of disappointed when we went inside. i thought there'd be furniture and fixtures. its almost as if its empty.

Both the church and the convent is a 'must see' in this island. This two-storey convent is now a school and there is not much to see on the second floor(which is bit frustrating, they should've made it a museum). The external structure is a must for photography. =)

Though it has also gone through improvements, what I like best about the convent are the floor patterns.

Lazi convent is a huge and magnificent structure standing still in the heart of small and quite town of Lazi. It is a living testament on how the Spaniards , particularly the friars, were so influential and powerful during those times. It has endured time amid destruction of war and decay brought by natural reasons and now serves as school... More
