The tour guide told us that the Lazi convent is one of the oldest churches not just in the Philippines but also in Asia. We weren't able to enter the church since we were in a hurry for our next stop.

At first, I just wanted to stay outside. Since I was with a group, I need to blend in. We went inside. I was amused by the place was built and being kept. The walks and floors are still intact. The railings are smooth and...More

This old curch has great lighting. Good for selfie, groupie or pictorial. It has natural light that illuminates along the old chuch facade. Buy a candle from the local vendor and make a wish
