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

I love old churches and loved this Lazi convent. It is worth a visit and say a little prayer and light a candle.

Nice part of history. It's in compound of the farmer school. So we can check how the child's making little bamboo house. Inside you can see few religion properties, statues and clothes for clerics.
