Interesting old church

Across the the street is the former convent now being used as a school. The kids were having a dance competition out in the yard.

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.

St. Isidore de La Labrador is one of the oldest churches still existing in the island, it features a stunning well preserved coral walls and a beautiful facade, the serenity of the place and the big shade of the tree gives you an old world feel. I like this place, good for mediating and praying.

This old Spanish church is situated in the town of Lazi and is opposite to the convent. As churches go it was quite interesting, mainly due to its construction being mainly out of coral, with the majority of it being pink. Apparently the walls are 1 meter thick and it was indeed quite cool inside. It's not a place you... More

St. Isidore is one of the oldest churches in the Philippines. As with the first churches that still survive, the structure and design of this church is very simple and austere. Though lacking in ornateness, it gives you a real glimpse of the early decades of Catholicism in the country. I couldn't help but be awed by the fact that... More

This was part of the Falls tour that we took and it was a nice side trip because it provided a good solemn break from the nature tripping.

Awesome old church with old wooden floor and a very unique door curtain....abaca rope! However, bats are freely flying inside and outside of the church.

Just like any other old churches in the Philippines. But not so historical to look. and the place is near to commercial area. Not so preserved. But still still I appreciate it.

The place was like preserved in a time capsule. I feel I time travelled. The place was not touristy - which I loved. There were no noise from the surroundings and it was just perfectly serene and peaceful. Not to mention the beautiful architecture of the church and the old convent; it was nostalgia, historically significant.

Holds more of the old-world feel with its stone-facade reliefs still intact. Stones used in its structure show coral patterns. Inside, the two wooden pulpits can still be found attached to the pillars towards the front of the church. Wooden beams and supports and stairs are still maintained, but looks a bit less-cared for. Looks more worn down than the... More
