Overview of Navalas Church

Navalas Church in Guimaras is considered to be the oldest structure in this island. Built in 1880 Navalas Church also known as San Isidro Labrador Church in Barangay Navalas the municipality of Buenavista has been the oldest seat of the Catholicism in this island and the product of community labor and unity.

Navalas Church is made of coral rocks abundant in the area during the construction of this edifice. Don Miguel Jayme who has contributed much to the construction with Doña Carmen Javellana donated the piece of land where the Church lies.

It is the oldest existing Roman Catholic Church in the province of Guimaras that has survived the ravages of time; built in 1880-1885. A bigger bell, said that be more than four feet tall, formerly hang at the belfry was carted away and dumped into the sea near Isla del Siete Pecados by Muslim raiders. Only the façade remain untouched but the ceilings and structure inside the church was already renovated.

"These are pretty cool to see, but I don't think it's good to have metal corroding into their crystal clear waters. I think they should move it out of the water, and onto a hill, like the other one. Lots of cool artwork and graffiti. If you look inside the tanks, all you see is beer cans and bottles. Must be a popular spot to meet up with friends.
