Well-preserved!

Few churches in the Philippines with a wooden floor and it is well-preserved until today. It's also a popular stop for tourists visiting Siquijor.

Be amazed at the centuries-old church with wooden floors which is maintained by locals (by applying floor wax). Colorful interior, natural ambient light coming to the altar. Amazing how this church survive nature over time. A must-stop before going to Cambugahay Falls

If you love old structures and churches like me, this church is a must visit. I love how they kept the original appearance of the church. Tip: Go near the altar to see more antique statues

Right in front of the Lazi Convent. I spent like one hour or less to see both buildings. And once again, I´m not really interested in these kind of places, but it has some historical value. The convent was built in the very beginning of the 1900s and it is still standing and having mass every day.

Old but has a character Clean but seemingly uncared for. In need of restoration. Ask permission from the church care takers or your tour guide to take a peek onto the mezzanine to find a few weathered church furniture pieces.

Just like any other churches in the Philippines, St. Isidore de Labrador Church at Siquijor showcases a strong Spanish influence in the way the church was built. For me, it is a priceless heritage site that needs to be preserved and conserve for future generations to see.

Just like the old churches around the country, this church is proof of how strong our Catholic faith is and how we're deeply influenced by the colonizers.

This is one of the oldest churches in the Philippines. Still a very beautiful church and worth passing by.

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.

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.
