The Baclayon Church, located at Tagbilaran, Bohol, is one of the great foundations of Bohol’s past. It is the second oldest stone church in the Philippines next to San Agustin Church in Intramuros. It has been standing strong since the Spanish colonization in the 15th century. Its construction was completed in the year 1727. Today, it showcases a centuries-old worship place and a museum that displays and preserves early history and culture of the Filipinos, specifically the Boholanos.

Blood Compact Shrine
The Blood Compact Shine is one of the historical landmarks of Bohol which symbolizes a very important event happened centuries ago in the island. This event was when Spanish Conquistador Miguel Lopez de Legazpi and ruler of Bohol, Datu Sikatua, made an amiable agreement to seal their friendship by drinking a cup of wine mixed with the blood of each other.

Clarin’s Ancestral House
The Clarin Ancestral House that dates back in 1840. Nestled in the heart of Loay in Bohol, an ancestral house stands with a strong influence of the Bohol's past.

It is a large square house made out of coral stone foundation, wooden walls and nipa roof cover.
