this church stands for more than a century already, a well preserved one...wooden floors, thick walls, the ceiling, the old wooden pulpit and the century old figures of Saints...

located right in front of the port as if it welcomes everyone who visits Siquijor. Old but well maintained church

The church is right in front of the Lazi convent. Its floors are entirely made of wood that are too hard for termites to destroy. The walls were originally made of sea corals and put together by egg whites. It'll be worth a visit. :)

I like the pinkish facade of the church. The tricycle driver told us that the blocks of cement was bound using eggs. The church was built in 1857 and considered as a historical symbol.

The church is a mute witness to the time of the Spaniards. There has been some slight improvements (like its portal) but I don't think it looks nice. Also, I think it should be cleaned more without damaging its antiquity.

You see one in the Visayes and you've pretty much seen them all, but they're among the most enduring symbols of Philippine history and culture and merit a visit.

This was well worth the drive on our scooter to Lazi. The 19th century church is very attractive -- inside and out. I was especially struck by the lovely original wood floor. The convent across the way is also interesting, but could really use some maintenance.

I love old churches and this one's as old as old can be. The flooring of the church is still wood. The convent just acrossis the biggest in Asia and has a museum of old church documents, paraphernalia, priests' vestments, etc. The notations were very helpful in understanding the story behind this church. Being in the convent felt like being... More

I like how the church grounds seems so serene and how they were able to preserve the antiquity of the church.

We visited this church during our tour of the island. This church is located across the road from the Lazi Convent and was built in 1884 .The church was deserted during our visit and whilst old and in need of repair it was a facinating place with plenty of character in the form of cracks, rusts, uneven colors and this...
