Discover the best of Bohol on this countryside tour of the island. First stop is the famous Blood Compact Site, where the Spanish explorer Miguel Lopez de Legazpi and Datu Sikatuna, chieftain of Bohol, performed a blood compact to seal their friendship on 16th March 1565, considered to be the first treaty of friendship between the Spaniards and Filipinos.
Visit the impressive and ancient Baclayon Church, declared a National Cultural Treasure by the National Museum of the Philippines. Built from coral stones, this cross-shaped church has three impressive altars, a quadrangular watchtower, and a Baroque and Neoclassical pulpit.
