About this place -

A walk around the Parish Complex where these buildings are located is like stepping back to a colorful and turbulent period of the town’s past. The imposing edifice, with its thick stone walls made of coral slabs and high windows, served a dual purpose: as a place of worship and refuge for the people during the pirate sieges. About 90 percent of the Patrocinio de Maria Church is of the original construction, and it has preserved its choir loft and pipe organ, although the latter does not work anymore. The Boljoon Church was declared a National Historical Landmark in 1999 by the National Historical Institute and a National Cultural Treasure by the National Museum in 2001. These are the highest honors a structure can receive from both institutions.
