Guimbal Church | Ilo-Ilo

Guimbal Church
Guimbal Church or St. Nicholas of Tolentino Church  doesn’t have any record to when I was erected or established. But however completed between 1769 and 1774 under Friar Juan Campos. In 1893, it was further enlarged but later was destroyed by fire during the Revolution in 1896 to 1898.

Guimbal Church Facade
This church of Guimbal was built from coral stone and yellow limestone through forced labor. The design is more on Spanish Colonial Style. The columns placed on the facade were added as additional support and has an artistic design. But I noticed that the road in front has a higher level than the floor of the church.
