Lovely old Building

A lovely piece of history to visit which is still a working school. Peaceful grounds. Situated in a tree lined street.

There isn't much to see here. You can ride by and take pictures of the outside. There is an active school being run out of here, so tourists can't just waltz in. But, it's a FABULOUS ride getting there, and any excuse to poke around Siquijor is good enough. So ok, make it your goal to get here just for... More

If you are a historian, this place is ok. Some parts of the convent is used as a school room. The first floor is being utilized as school office. You'll be amazed by the authenticity of walls and furnitures.

If you love old structures and history altogether, this beautiful place in Lazi is the place to be. I love how they preserve the convent specially the stairs and the window panes. Must see in Siquijor.

Probably as I´m from Mexico I don't really find this kind of attractions pleasurable to my sight. It is just an old building that has history for the island as it is one of the oldest convents in the Philippines. Of course if you are at Lazi, you should go, because there is not much other than beach and mountains.

Historical. One of the biggest early convents in Asia. Converted to a school. In need of a major restoration. Sits just across St Isidore de Labrador Church.

Getting inside this convent is like going back to the Spanish period at Siquijor. The convent spoke of a lavish lifestyle the Spanish Friars had at Siquijor. This is a good piece of Filipino-Spanish heritage site and place.

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.
