BACLAYON, Bohol - The La Purisima Concepcion de la Virgen Maria or the Baclayon Church, which crumbled to the ground after the magnitude 7.2 earthquake in 2013, was reopened on Tuesday with a fully restored interior.
The National Historical Commission of the Philippines turned over the restored structure to the Diocese of Tagbilaran. Papal Nuncio to the Philippines Archbishop Gabriele Giordano Caccia led the parishioners into the Church.
The famed church opened its doors to tourists during Holy Week last year, with only its facade restored then. - with reports from Annie Perez, ABS-CBN News
