Churches found in the Queen City of The South - Cebu

You can post all churches found in this island.  ;)


Church of San Miguel Arcangel of Argao






Of all the church facades, it is Argao church that is the most decorated, most rococo. It is also the second oldest church of the island and one of the oldest in the country. The semi-circular arched entrance is flanked by columns on rectangular pedestals decorated with spread eagles and Corinthian capitals. The panels are crowded with relief designs. The small rectangular relief on top of the main door represents the Augustinian symbol and a window with balustradesis crowned by a small statue of San Miguel the Archangel.

The original Argao Parish as founded and constructed in May 17, 1734 by Fr. Ignacio de Olave, Argao?s first parish priest. The church has magnificent painted roof inside, has still its original pulpit and is full of antiques. Even the doors still have their original woodcarvings.



Nuestra Señora del Pilar de Zaragoza (Sibonga)



Sibonga was established as a visita of Carcar in 1690 and was later put under Argao’s jurisdiction. Becoming an independent parish, construction of the church began between 1846-1868 and completed during the term of Fr. Enrique Magaz in 1881. The parish house nearby was built earlier in 1839 by Bishop Santos Gomez Marañon.

The church was restored in 1907 and consecrated by Msgr. Jeremias Harty, archbishop of Manila, with the assistance of Msgr. Thomas Hendrick, bishop of Cebu, Msgr. Juan Gorordo and seventeen other priests.


The Church of Patrocinio de Maria in Boljoon







churches, it is the church in Boljoon which best gives one a sense of the Philippine colonial past. The church of Boljoon is the oldest remaining original stone church in Cebu and is relatively well-preserved. It was declared for conservation and restoration in 1998.

The style of the church is pseudo-baroque-rococo. The designer has seemingly followed the same pattern in the churches of Argao and Dalaguete with the exception of some Rococo decorations on the panels and along shallow pillars. It has the appearance of an impressionist painting ?a la Greco?, with its elongated shape.

The church of Boljoon was founded during 1599 under the administration of the Church of Carcar. On October 31, 1690 Boljoon was made an independent parish. On September 27, 1737 the convent was abandoned due to lack of priests and was consequently handed by the Augustinians to the Jesuits In 1747 Boljoon was returned to the Augustinians in exchange for Liloan, Cotcot and Maraling. The Church of Patrocinio in Boljoon has recently celebrated its 400th anniversary since its establishment in 1599. A plenary indulgence is said to be earned by those who will visit the church this year.


Carcar Church



The church of Carcar sits on a hill overlooking this Cebu town. It is one of the magnificant and unique churches in the province. The statues of the 12 apostles are just a later addition.

The town, originally called Siaro, was first located near the sea in what is now the barrio of Valladolid. As early as 1559, the Augustinians already established their convent of Our Lady of the Visitation and was a visita of Sto. Niño. Between 1607 and 1610, it was made a vicariate and in 1611 was transferred under the matrix of San Nicolas.

Great documentary here! Hope to visit these churches as well. Btw, the interior of the Boljoon church is somewhat similar to the one in Siquijor and the ceiling resembles the one in Carcar. TFS!
keep shooting. keep posting. keep inspiring.
