We went here around 2pm or so. The weather was hot so we didn't stay too long. But I appreciated the simple beauty of this place. The convent has this old school feels like the ones in Ilocos, there's always something to be said about...More

Beautiful building that marks the early days of the Spanish take over in the area. The area around it is very beautiful and is a relaxing stop when travelling the island

This is a regal structure just across the church that will make you admire how it was restored. The artifacts are also awesome and will give you a glimpse of how it was before. Pictures by the window and the stairs are awesome.

As Catholics, the Lazi Church and Convent was a great stop for us. The place was very serene ad the interior of the church very beautiful. We lit candles in a devotional area just outside of the church. Truly a wonderful spiritual experience.

Or so goes the blurb. Might be true because the convent is enormous - given that it was built centuries ago and there are no other structure in similar scale on the island. Always made me wonder why the Spanish friars built such a huge...More
