I just love to see nature and old buildings, hence, i kinda like the place since the setting of this scenario is a combination of both. When we were there, there was a photo shoot happening so we just stayed at the gate and marveled at the sight. It was in a secluded place good enough for convents. And since... More

Even though this little place was under renovation, we had a great stop and walked inside. The stuff around was friendly, and they showed us the rooms, and we had a chance to explore the upstairs. We would suggest to give it this stuff, if you have a chance, and even better if you can grab one of the local... More

If your religious, this is a must visit. Otherwise building is reserved and closed for public viewing.

Just across the Lazi Church. This was my alma mater. I spent my elementary years here. Our classrooms are the ones in the first floor. They said it was once a prison. The second floor is where the parish priest live. There is also a museum which houses the church and the convents antique things. Right now, it has been... More

charming place and one of the most beautiful places in Siquijor! I loved it to sit under the giant Acacia tree and just only observe how is going on life there. The only sad thing is, that the building will need a renovation very urgent.

Way much better than the church in front of it.We were able to go inside and see the old building really well. I appreciate the wooden floors and old-fashioned windows in the convent.Definitely needs to be visited

This structure probably witnessed years and years of Siquijor life - peaceful and laid back. It gives you that old Spanish feel. It probably needs a few repairs, but hoping they would maintain the old design and structure

This was one of our chosen stops in Siquijor, because the place is of great cultural significance. We went there on a Saturday, and the convent was closed (they are currently using it as a school, I think). We weren't able to get upstairs anymore (there used to be a museum inside). But the facade of the convent was already... More

The Lazi Convent is nowadays used as a school, which I see as a hazard, since it is so extremely run down, it barely stands and is about to collapse. The arches are bending under the weight and are supported by wooden staves. The architecture itself is Spanish influenced, so it is quite a big construction with two floors spreading... More
