Bohol - Church stop: Loboc

Loboc is more than just about a ferry ride across the river. Or a daring crossing on a hanging bridge. It's also the site of a very beautiful church, one of the most beautiful colonial type in the country. An interesting bit of trivia: in the 80s, the local government tried to impress the powers that be by building a bridge across Loboc river. Only thing is, the bridge will likely displace the foundations of the church. Construction was stopped at the height of people power in '86, saving this church from imminent destruction.T he remains of the bridge can be seen near the belfry, a strange sight as the road/bridge ends two storeys-high before it can cross the road.
