Favorite thing: The present Church of Kalibo is of modern construction but retains some of its characteristics.
The Church has a long history:
1581 - The Augustinians establish a mission in Kalibo
1680 - Church was erected in Barrio Laguinbanwa
1804 - Another church and a convento was constructed
1885 - Tragedy struck when a big fire raze the town, including the convento
1886 - Convento reconstructed
1947 - After WWII the Church was reconstructed and remodelled
June 14, 1990 - An earthquake measuring 7.1 hit Panay Island. The church suffered major damage including cracks on its walls
1993 - The church was restored and improved to accommodate the many pilgrims who come to celebrate the Feast of Santo Nino
