The best church as far as I'm concerned in the Philippines. The original flooring is grand! The place is very powerful and the aqua ceilings and pulpits are well preserved. Look around carefully for this church has many hidden corners. If you are a history lover you will love it.

From the wood flooring to the rope curtain, this church will take you back in time. It's worth a stop!

Old church with decrepit flooring and walls which are badly needing of restoration. This should be declared as heritage sites to preserve and restore damages.

felt like i was brought back in time when we arrived. the church was old and has obviously weathered a lot. was not able to get a picture inside but the church is a good inclusion in our Siquijor itinerary!

We didn't really plan to visit this, but it was on our route, so thought we might as well! It's a reasonably interesting building, but not very picture-worthy. Inside was interesting, but I don't think I found the hardwood floor too unique, it was just a floor! The climb up the bell-tower was about the only redeeming feature, commanding reasonable... More

Still a focal point of life for the local community. Overall in ok condition. Of course with any building this old there're are areas that need restoration, but clearly the funds are not available. There were several other visitors there at the time we visited. The location is away from the city, so you will probably need to rent a... More

Right across the lazi convent. The walls of the church are made of pink coral stone. Most of the colour has faded and other parts of the church also need some patching up. I'm sure this church looked really nice a long time ago. Not anymore. The church was closed so we could not enter.

Interesting to see the older,more historic side of the island.it was an interesting side trip to see this church and the convent across the road. Still very much in use by the local population.

I've never seen wooden floors in a Church before. Be careful walking as they can be slippery and some are uneven. It's worth a visit as it is the oldest Church in Siquijor. I really felt as if I was brought back a century as soon as I stepped in.

Nice place to visit when travelling around the island, very old church. You should notice pink bricks made of corals :)
