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.

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...

This Church was set up for a wedding when had a look inside. It has an attractively embellished pulpit, and as is typical of stone churches in the Philippines, it was cool inside although the temperature outside was pleasant. The Church's roof could do with some work but there was no evidence of any leaks. The equally impressive Lazi Convent... More
