The ruins of the church were caused by a volcanic eruption back in 1871, but the church was built back in the 16th century. The fact that so much has survived both the eruption and the test of time says a lot for the builders....More

Buy 5 candles worth Php 20.00 and light them up before entering the church ruins. You don't have to spend 30 minutes here. 15 minutes would be enough.

Nothing more to say but wow! It's a sacred and historical place. I just always amaze old things. It is one of the tourist spot in Camiguin.

This was included in our tour and I can't say much about this place. The ruins include the 4 walls and nothing else. We were able to buy lansones and dried squid here though.

A place to reflect the history of the fiery island. Beautifully manicured lawns juxtapositioned w/ sturdy ancient ruins make a stunning picture backdrop. The ruins Underscore the everlasting relationship of the country and Catholicism

So happy to have gone here. No touristy buzz thankfully but lots and lots of history and overgrown nooks to soak in. I really hope this stays this way.
