Simple church in the main square of bantayan city, inside there are no paintings and the exterior has a large bell tower.

Went here to pray and also to admire its architecture. Walls are from corals. Majestic church, built from hundreds of years ago. Read somewhere that locals usually use this building as a safe haven during calamities including wars and typhoons. When I went here there was a wedding that is about to start so couldn't really explore much.

1560s. That's old, right? The adjoining museum is still under renovation, so we didn't really get to see its history and how the town grew with the church over the centuries.

One of the nicest churches I've seen! Love the interior inside and as well as on the outside. Defined a must visit place in Bantayan!

The structure is really old but still beautiful. It is obvious that the church had surpassed the test of times but it's still standing majestically. Visiting this place is reviving history. It is actually infront of the town plaza. It's worth a visit especially if you are a Catholic.

Perfect example of the Spanish occupation of the Philippines. I've seen exactly the same in Mexico. I bought some candles right inside the door, then you go through building to light them outside. Different from lighting candles at the altar. We'll worth a visit to feel the Spanish influence.

It's 11 kms from Sta Fe. You can take a motorbike or a bike there (If you're up for a workout). They let me go up the bell tower, kuya was very nice to let me.

Beautiful architecture. Stained glass windows. The present church about 150 years old. But long history dating back to 1580. Destroyed before by the Moros who also took 700 slaves. Worth a visit definitely.

One of the best examples of the Spanish church influence in the Philippines. Not being a religious person myself, but still enjoyed the tranquil feeling of this church.

The church is a blend of Spanish architecture and local culture. Built with coral rocks, the walls have an uneven texture that's unique in its style. The stain glass of is usual like in European cathedrals, except that the art work and colors on the glass is more Filipino in style. The church survived a bomb that was dropped on... More
