6th stop of our Bohol Countryside Tour, Day 2 in Bohol (January 29 - 31, 2010).
The Church of the Our Lady of Immaculate Conception in in Baclayon, Bohol is considered as one of the oldest churches in the Philippines. A visita was built in the same spot in 1595 with the arrival of Jesuit priests in the Philippines. However, it was only in 1717 that Baclayon became a parish which began the construction of the church. Around 200 workers constructed the church until it was completed in 1727. Later in 1835, the church's bell was installed.
