Monastic treasure

A must see on a Bohol tour . Badly damaged during the 2013 earthquake which resulted in the destruction of the famous shadow of jesus graphic. Still worth a visit though

A lovely old church, but damaged by an earthquake a few years ago, the church is now being kept from disintegration using scaffolding.

It was surprising to see this place again , compared to 5 years ago . Saddened to see the wreckage but still you'll feel the serenity of the place . There's no problem to park your transport to visit the church . It's a great place to meditate even for few minutes . It was just amazing to see it... More

Unfortunately this beautiful old church was damaged in the earthquake in 2013. Currently under renovation, but still open to the public. Some great history here. Beautiful murals and Catholic idols.

As part of the day tour, we were rather shocked when we arrived. There was no staff, no other visitors and no activity here. We looked at it for 2 mins and then drove off
