I felt cheated on this tour since the guide we got just told us it's the blue church of Palawan. Get a certified tour guide who can fully educate you on Palawan's history.

It's always pleasing to visit churches that are well respected and maintained, no matter the age. The church is the center piece for many of the locals daily activities, ranging from worshiping to outdoor basketball to small group after school study sessions.
