SIQUIJOR CHURCH, Siquijor - a Travel Guide

Siquijor Church
The Siquijor Church greets all the visitors as it is situated near the port. It was established in 1783 by the seculair priests. It was built using coral stones and initially used cogon for roofing. What's unique about Siquijor Church is the bell tower which is built a few meters away from the church. Like some other old churches in the Philippines,  its convent served as the hiding place from the pirates and other invaders. Today, it is the center of Catholicism in the province but for a non-Catholic like me, this church is the living witness of the past survived by the province and its people.

HOW TO GET TO SIQUIJOR CHURCH, SIQUIJOR:
From Manila, you can either take a flight to Dumaguete, Negros Oriental or Tagbilaran, Bohol. I highly recommend Manila to Dumaguete Airport because it's cheaper. From Dumaguete Airport, charter a tricycle to Dumaguete Port. Then, a fastcraft ferry to Siquijor. If in Tagbilaran, you need to ride on the shuttle to Island City Mall (ICM) then charter a trike to the port. Ride a ferry to Siquijor.
