The Lazi Convent is nowadays used as a school, which I see as a hazard, since it is so extremely run down, it barely stands and is about to collapse. The arches are bending under the weight and are supported by wooden staves. The architecture itself is Spanish influenced, so it is quite a big construction with two floors spreading... More

We took the chance to have a 2in1 stop to see both the church and the convent. The convent by now holds a primary school in it and used to have a museum, which is being renovated at the moment. We took a few minutes to go through the empty rooms and could have a look at one of the... More

The convent's design was interesting. It gives you an imagination of how people operate the convent decades back. A must see and a good place to take pictures.

Spooky place! No entrance fee! It's in front of Lazi Church. Go inside the convent and take selfies. :)

If you are an architect lover or a history lover you definitely should walk up those old stairs and visit this convent. The light coming through the ancient windows makes magic with the almost abandoned look and feel the building has to it.

Upon entry you could feel the age of the convent. The place is falling apart and I hate to see this rot without any intervention..

the whole atmosphere is one of old mansions like in Paris or Italy, or South of Spain, a huge large room, old, almost abandoned bursting with history. I loved the sunlight through the windows lightning up the old floor boards, the staircase...everything.

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. Also we weren't allowed inside, so could only look in from the outside! Wouldn't advise making a special trip.

The convent is located on the left just before you arrive in the center of lazi (coming from siquijor town). Nice old building. You can go to the 2nd floor and walk on the beautiful wooden floor. Not sure if it was still safe. I think the whole building needs a restoration. Not worth going to if you are not... More
