If you're visiting Baclayon Church you'll have to visit the seaside area as well. You'll get the best view of the church on that area since it's located near the road.

Baclayon is a grand old 16th century coral stone church situated a short drive, south east of Tagbiliran City. If open, check out the museum. 30 minutes is ample time here. Incorporate the church in your Loboc River Cruise, Corella Tarsier Sanctuary, Bilar forest circuit.

The church is big and there are many Old and antique statue of saints inside the church near the entrance. The altar is so grand and old. A museum is adjacent to the church. Parking is available after paying the museum fee.
