Earthquake damage is considerable

They try to do restore the church but the damage is heavy. Pity because it is an old monumental church and the location is nice.

This church was pretty much destroyed on the inside by the Bohol Earthquake. You can go inside while the reconstruction is going on and, take photos (as we did).

It results really impressive to see the disaster of the earthquake on one of the oldest church of the island - just a few minutes stop is enough

Our tour guide parked close by and asked a builder if we could go in. The church was badly damaged in the earthquake and there is a huge reconstruction project happening. Its beautiful inside and hilarious to walk amongst the builders and their machinery.

A must see on a Bohol tour . Badly damaged during the 2013 earthquake which resulted in the destruction of the famous shadow of jesus graphic. Still worth a visit though

A lovely old church, but damaged by an earthquake a few years ago, the church is now being kept from disintegration using scaffolding.
