      Loboc Belfry
    by bike_packer
 

Built in the 17th century near the riverbanks of Loboc River, Loboc Church is the 2nd oldest in Bohol (of course, Baclayon Church is the oldest) with San Pedro Apostol as its patron saint. The walls made of coral stones, the church building has its belfry erected separately about 50m away across the main road.

The Museo de Loboc in one of the floors of the convent houses well-preserved artifacts and old statues of saints that has been witnesses of the history of Loboc through the years.

TRIVIA: Pedro Calungsod, the 2nd Filipino to be beatified is claimed to have come from the town as implied by the presence of Lobocanos surnamed Calunsod and the Loboc Church minor seminary to have already existed in his times where most probably he attended.

Address: Loboc, Bohol
