"Scaffolding rehabilitation"

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

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

Watch a shame that this and so many other historical churches were destroyed when the earthquakes hit this part of the world. However out of this has come a beautiful new church for the community.

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

Located at Loboc, on the road to the Chocolate Hills from Tagbiliran airport or Panglao Island (Loay Interior Road), this 18th century church is an example of one of the (better) Baroque type churches that are dotted across Philippines. Built of coral stones, the present church (commonly known as Loboc Church) was completed in 1734, and became the center of... More
