I am not a church person but I appreciated the peace and the solemnity in the premises of the church. We didn't get to go inside the church because it was already closed. There was an open version of the church complete with the altar and the pews just right outside the actual church under a big tree and I... More

In all my travels, this is the first time I encountered wooden floors in a church of this size. Although wear and tear was very much evident, this flooring has so much promise being so unique, one of its kind. We hope the town officials realize this and come up with a project to restore the church's magnificence.

If you want your selfie to be a bit different, you might want to visit this well preserved church and go ahead take that shot. This is one of the churches with a nice facade. And as told, you might want to make a wish whenever you visit a church for the 1st time.

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 The walls were originally made of sea corals and put together by egg whites.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.
