The Ruins of Baclayon Church – Bohol, Philippines

Ruins of Baclayon ChurchEarvin and I made sure to drop by Baclayon Church during our trip in Bohol last year. Unfortunately, I don’t have much photos to share because the church is being renovated when we paid our visit. Cameras are not allowed in most places too. 🙁

Baclayon Church:

baclayon church ruinsBaclayon Church is a Roman Catholic Church situated in the town of Baclayon, Bohol. It has always been a tourist attraction even before the 7.2 magnitude earthquake that took place last October 2013. The earthquake damaged the church so badly but the it did not stop the tourists from visiting the church, or should I say the ruins.

renovation of Baclayon ChurchAs I have mentioned, it is currently being renovated. There is a 100php or $2 entrance fee for those who who’d like to explore the ruins. The proceeds from the entrance fee goes to the renovation efforts for the church.

Earvin and I look forward to visiting Bohol again and hopefully, the renovations are completed by then. 🙂 I highly recommend you pay a visit to the ruins if you ever find your way in Bohol especially if you are a Roman Catholic. 🙂

    I love the old school roman catholic churches. I got to visit a few in Poland, and most notably my family’s home town church. It looked a lot like this!

    What a beautiful church! I remember going to Italy last summer and there were a lot of different cathedrals, etc. I couldn’t photograph.
