One of the oldest churches in the Philippines.
Guimbal Church or the San Nicholas of Tolentino Church is one of the oldest churches in the country. There was no specific year when the Church was built but it was estimated in the late 1730s to 1740s under the guidance of Friar Juan Aquado. The construction took around 3 decades and it was completed between the year 1769 and 1774 by Friar Juan Campos.
In 1849, it was then enlarged by Friar Jose Oranguren but by the Second World War, the Church was destroyed. It was rebuilt but by 1948, an 8.2 magnitude earthquake hit the Panay Island and the Guimbal Church was damaged.
