San Agustin Church Complex

san agustin church complex

The National Museum of Bohol features the San Agustin Church Complex in Panglao, Bohol.

On August 29, 2011, the Panglao Church complex was declared an Important Cultural Property by the National Museum of the Philippines. The declaration included the church, the plaza, the old Panglao Municipio, the Escuelas de Niños and Niñas, and the archway and mortuary chapel of the 19th-century cemetery in the Municipality of Panglao, Province of Bohol.

The entire Panglao church complex has all the elements of an ideal church plan, with several diverse and remarkable features occupying the largest plaza in the province.

The Panglao church complex sustained damages on its heritage structures following the 7.2 magnitude Bohol earthquake on October 15, 2013. The National Museum of the Philippines led the reconstruction and restoration of the church complex and turned over the church and watchtower to the Diocese of Tagbilaran on December 13, 2017, and the old municipio to the Municipal Government of Panglao on December 15, 2019.
