“Baclayon Church after earthquake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

Few years back we been there in Bohol for a tour with my friends and family. One of the places that I love is the century old Loboc and Baclayon Church, Loboc river cruise, tarsier and the Chocolate Hills. A day after the M7.2 Earthquake, I went back to Bohol, and this time, I was with Earthquake Quick Response team (EQRP), composed of volunteer civil engineers from Philippine Institute of Civil Engineers and Structural Engineers of the Philippines (PICE-ASEP). Together with DPWH and LGU engineers from Tagbilaran City we were tasked to do rapid / detailed assessment of damaged structures, to check the structural integrity of major structures. During our inspection, i have a chance to see and visit these major attractions again, but this time, it is already destroyed. Though,this attractions, were destroyed by the major earthquake, it is still worth to visit because history will not repeat again. It will not be the same century old church that you will see in the furture. Loboc river cruise is now back to its regular operation. Bohol is nice place to explore.

“Nice and Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

We Been there last year October 2012 this place is one of a kind. I find it very amusing.
I really like this Church so do I love Bohol most specially the Loboc River cruise. I won't forget the Romantic day I had with my Husband.. The place is very promising and if ever given again a chance I would love to explore the other part of Bohol which is Danao Adventure.

“Nice church”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

There was a mass in progress when I went. Walls are very thick. Makes you appreciate how hard it would of been to build. Near the entrance to the museum, there is a whole lot of swallows flying in and out to their nests, which I enjoyed watching. Free entry except for museum.
