Siquijor: Lazi Church and Convent

When we were in Siquijor last August, weather was still predictable to some degree. On our second day there, things were just perfect for an inland tour. One of the our stops was the San Isidro Labrador Church and Convent in the town of Lazi.

Lazi Church & Convent

The church and the convent date back to the late 1800's, built after Lazi was made a parish in the name of San Isidro Labrador under the auspices of the Augustinian Recollects. The whole complex had the church on one side of the street, the convent on the other.

I'll stop with the history lesson here. I won't pretend I know more than these things, nor do I have the diligence to do a little bit of research. I just knew that it was a great day to take pictures and that day, these structures were just the perfect subjects anyone could ask for.
