Sts. Peter and Paul Church in Bantayan, Cebu

Sts. Peter and Paul Church is located in the heart of Bantayan town. The church is made of stones and corals and it is the oldest parish in the Visayas and Mindanao founded in June 1580. A lot of people come here during Holy Week to celebrate. Some people expect to come to the island for a fiesta and eat pork. As what I’ve heard last night from the news, that kind of rule from the Vatican was already expired. So if you ever come here during the Holy Week, make sure that it’s for religious purposes. 🙂
