The Baclayon Church was closed for repair when we visited because it was damaged by a recent earthquake. Instead, we had a guided tour of the Museo that houses many church artifacts like vestments and statues. We walked on floor boards that are over two hundred years old, crossed thresholds and looked out of windows that are just as old.... More

To see the altar untouched despite the destruction caused by the last earthquake as a sight to behold. The magnets in the gift shop is one of a kind. A bit pricey but nicest in the island.

Maybe because the Church's foundation is not purely limestone, the damage brought about by the earthquake is not extensive. The hundreds year old church is well maintained and even has a museum of artifacts from the time it was built.

As part of our tour of the attractions of Bohol Island, we visited Baclayon church, one of the oldest and most beautiful churches built by the Jesuits during the Spanish Era in the Visayas region. The church was heavily damaged by a 7.2 earthquake in 2013 and when we visited it last June, we were happy to see that it... More

The church is currently under renovation because it sustained major damage during the earthquake in 2013 so we weren't really able to see its beauty entirely. However, the altar is still intact and it was beautiful. It's good that at least that part wasn't damaged. Hopefully, it will really be restored by 2017, as was said by our guide. We... More

What? Its just an old church. I mean, i know it means a lot to our history but you couldn't really see a thrill in it. I'm sorry. I'm a thrill seeker

The Good: I am fond of church. Church is usually one of the places I usually visit whenever I visit a new place. What I like about it is that I was able to indulge in a piece of history considering that it is one of oldest. The bad: I rated it poor based on my visit although I know... More

Baclayon church is known to be the oldest church in Bohol. Unfortunately, it was partially ruined when an earthquake hit the province. During my visit, I only had the chance to view it from the outside. Construction was on-going to bring back the church's former glory. They have a museum inside but it was closed that time. By the way,... More
