San Isidore Labradore and Convent, Siquijor

ST. ISIDORE LABRADORE AND CONVENT

St. Isidore Labradore Church and Convent are National Historical Shrines that date all the way back to 1857 when Agustinian Recollects started the construction of these magnificent structures. The convent is considered to be the biggest in Asia during its time and feature wooden floors and pegs that hold together the structure instead of the modern iron nails.
