Philippines - Bohol - Baclayon Church
(FRONT PAGE- EXPLORED)
Baclayon Church, located in the Bohol town of the same name. There’s a
claim that this church is possibly the second-oldest church in the
Philippines having been established in 1595, but the present structure
was constructed in 1727. Nevertheless, the Baclayon Church is indeed
the oldest church in Bohol.
Jesuits were the first order to establish Christianity on this part of Bohol and the inner structure was constructed under their helm. Later on, the Recollects took over the church’s administration and you can therefore see influences of both missionary orders scattered throughout the building. In addition, the Baclayon houses a museum containing lots of church material. Unfortunately, access to the museum is not for the public and requires the permission of the parish.
