Bohol - Church stop: Baclayon

A Bohol visit isn't just complete without a stopover at Baclayon church, the country's oldest standing church (it predates the Manila Cathedral by almost 10 years; while the Manila Cathedral was constructed ahead, it was rebuilt later). Trivia: the church was built with egg whites mixed with limestone. Annie Feleo's travel book theorized that with all egg whites used, the Pinoys figured out a way not to waste the yolks by concocting yemas and leche flan.
