I think they said this was the oldest church in Bohol province but I might be mistaken. But I do know this church is one of the few declared National Treasure. It has a very nice interior but most of decorations are kept away from...More

It's a very old church that I understand suffered earthquake damage. It is still possible to go inside for a small fee and it's not far away from other attractions so not an inconvenient place to stop.

I only stopped here to take some pics as it is one of the oldest churches in the Philippines. Old church usually means old architecture which is always nice to check out. Ten minutes later and I was on my way.

Most tours of Bohol include a stop at this historic church. When we were there, the church was closed, nevertheless, the guide could tell us some Architectural and historical facts. For us, it was mainly a quick photo stop and stretch the legs.

A visit to the church not only reminded us of always lifting everything to God, but also reminded us on the talents of the people who contributed on the interior paintings in making up this holy place.

We stopped by Baclayon Church - an old church founded by the Jesuits in the 1500s - on our way back to the seaport. PROS: The facade itself will take you back in time, and the interior will give you a sense of history and...More

Visiting the Baclayon Church is on most of the Bohol Island Tours so you will likely visit here if you are on tour. We have visited here several times over the past 20 years when in Bohol. Distressingly it was significantly damaged during the earthquake...More

We visited here as part of our tour of Bohol. It was a Sunday and there was a service in the church, with amazing singing from the young choir, so we didn't want to impose so it was a relatively short visit.
