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.

"Unfortunately, my experience was not very good. The sign said Open, but the doors were locked. I was told to go through the back entrance to get to the museum. I also had to leave through the back office area, as the doors were never opened up. As for the museum, it is very outdated, with some displays being broken. The information was interesting, but all of the information could probably be found online (or should be available online). If you go with low expectations, then it is worth the trip.
