Beautiful old church

We went here in the morning. I love old churches because of the history and culture they project. The floors and walls are still authentic. There is a pulpit for the priest as old... read more

This Catholic Church is very impressive! Aside from the year it was built, I'm amazed with their floorings. Yes, the floorings. It's made of wood and until now, it exists. As a tourist from a place with so many old churches, I can say that this church is amazing and well it is different!

My sister's goal in Siquijor is to visit old churches. There were a lot of them here and this Lazi church was a very old one. The floors, the ceiling and walls showed all signs of the church falling apart. But this is all part of history, so I don't mind having a church in need of repair for us... More

This very big church is in dire need for repairs before it can't be saved. Entrance is sadly free since some cash could help restore it. Still the size of the building is impressive.

Also known as "Lazi Church" (Siquijor Church is a different structure). Built in 1857 according to the National Historical Commission marker plastered on its wall. Located along a quiet, acacia-laden street in Lazi, it's rustic facade and interiors adds a charm to the church's location that presents a rural feel.

This in one of the old churches on the island of Siquijor. The design & architecture has been preserved and adds to the old-world mystical feel of the whole island.

It is not elaborately decorated facade but it speaks for the time it has been there. There were some relics to show off but not so much to see inside.

Architecturally interesting as a piece of Spanish colonial religious site that is still fairly original. If you're into old buildings or if you're catholic then it's worth stopping by, especially if you're riding the national road over the island. Be respectful though as this is a place of worship for the locals so it's best to avoid beachwear.

But, the candle vendors will not stop until you buy from them which can be annoying. :( Nice church.
