Guimbal Roman Catholic Church

The Guimbal Roman Catholic Church is the first structure that greets passers-by and tourists as they are ushered into the poblacion. Famous for its Spanish architecture, the church is built of adobe stones called igang quarried from Sitio Igang in Barangay Igcocola and coral stones quarried from Guimaras and Barangay Calampitao.


The church was constructed in 1733 through forced labor or polo imposed by the Spanish friars during the Spanish colonial period. It has undergone some reconstruction and restoration after it was destroyed twice durind the Second World War and during the 1948 earthquake.


At present it was rehabilitated to its original structure. The Roman Catholic faith was introduced in Guimbal in 1590.
