church of san pedro, loboc, bohol, philippines


This is the Church of San Pedro in the town of Loboc, Bohol, Philippines. This is the 2nd oldest church in Bohol and originally built in 1602, but was reduced to ashes and in 1638 a stronger one was built. This is by the side of the loboc river, where the famous floating restaurants are found.

We made a pitstop by the church after dining at one of the floating restaurants, and buy some supplies for the babies in our group. We looked around the area, but the church was already closed for the day. So all we were able to see was the outside of the church and some kids playing “bato-lata”, a local traditional game (another post, soon), by the side of the church.

These churches are built to last, had survived earthquakes, floods and other calamities for centuries. No doubt they are going to last more.

I took some pictures of the church and these are my favorites. Hope I captured the essence of the church’s might with these pictures.

This picture below is the bell tower, located close to the church, about 100 meters from the church according to the website.
