Oslob Church and Cuartel Ruins

By Angel Macaraig - Friday, January 27, 2017

After beach bumming at Sumilon Island, next in our itinerary was to visit the Oslob Church and the Cuartel Ruins. Aside from being historical, it's really a cool place to take photos. In fact, one of my favorite group photos was taken here. Can you guess which one? Check it out below!

About Oslob Church and Cuartel

Also known as Nuestra Señora de la Inmaculada Conception, the Oslob Church is one of the oldest churches in Cebu. The church was constructed in 1830, and was designed by Bishop Santos Gomez Marañon - the same person who built the Magellan's Cross kiosk in Cebu City. A fire gutted the Oslob Church on March 26, 2008 but was then reconstructed by the locals.

Just beside the church is where you will see the Oslob Cuartel which was built to house Spanish troops that were assigned in Oslob. This unfinished structure has double rows of arches, and is made of thick corals.
