About around Bohol ...

Baclayon

While travelling to the Chocolate Hills from Sun Apartelle, the guests will pass through the small city of Baclayon. You should make a short stop and examine the famous Blood Compact monument. It displays the blood pact between Spaniard, Miguel Lopez de Legaspi and the Filipino, Sikatuna, on March 16, 1565. The appearance of the Spanish has stamped the Philippines indelibly. All Philippine dialects contain many Spanish words and significantly, the Spanish delivered the catholic belief to this nation.

In Baclayon you will  also find the oldest church of the Philippines (constructed 1595), at which a small museum is connected.

Visitors who desire may also watch the women of Baclayon manufacturer their basket wares.
