The church was destroyed by the earthquake Oct 2013 but some parts of it still remain. The museum show many custom and status of Christian. Entrance fee is 50PHP, it can be included in your day tour in Bohol.

This is a nice stop over when you're strolling around Bohol. The church is still under renovation and hoping they will preserve the beauty of this church.
