Quaintest and Picturesque: Boljoon Church

Cebu

Enzo Lacap | Apr 15, 2013

Established in 1598, Boljoon is one of the oldest towns in southern Cebu. It is also the quaintest and picturesque. The Boljoon Church is veritable showcase of old and intricate carvings and bass relief. It is also pseudo-baroque rococo with beautifully decorate...d interior. It has a main nave and transcript and has twenty-eight pillars, two meters thick and made of mortar and lime, which support the walls as thick as the pillars. A communion rail with ornate silverworks was stolen from the church.
