A Journey Through Time: The Story of Baclayon Church

Baclayon Church, formally known as La Purisima Concepcion de la Virgen Maria Parish Church, was founded by Spanish Jesuit priests in 1596. Built with coral stones and bamboo, this iconic church has been lovingly preserved for over 400 years.

In October 2013, a devastating earthquake shook Bohol, severely damaging the church’s structure. With unwavering determination and support from local communities and international organizations, Baclayon Church underwent meticulous restoration work that unveiled even more historical treasures.
