Baclayon Church is the oldest church in the province and up to this day, exhibits the beauty of the Catholics’ sturdy stone churches. It is also one of the oldest churches in the country and among the best preserved churches built by the Jesuit priests. The Patron of the town of Baclayon is The Immaculate Concepcion of The Blessed Virgin Mary thus, celebrating the town fiesta every 8th of December every year. On the left wing of the church is an old convent that also houses the Baclayon Museum which exhibits copies of old chants, priests’ mass robes and antique statues.
The town’s origin of the name was believed by the locals to have derived from the dialect term “baclay” which means walk thus “baclayon” means to walk. Since the town is just a walking distance from the busier city of Tagbilaran, people are used to walking great distances when the conveniences of automobiles did not yet exist. Baclayon is 6 kilometers east of Tagbilaran city.
