Forced labor enabled the reconstruction of the Guimbal Church or the Church of St. Nicholas de Tolentino in Guimbal, Iloilo after it was ruined by fire. It was rebuilt by the Augustinian friars in the 1700s.
The center aisle of the church features an intricate marble mosaic design. The color of the structure is yellow because of the limestone rocks and coral stone powder used as cement mixture. The place is often visited by tourists and devotees who come from San Joaquin or Bucari.
Guimbal Church is 45 minutes away from the airport via private car, traffic permitting.
By spending time at these churches, your Holy Week spent in Iloilo will certainly be one of reflection and recollection.
