Prior to its boom as a tourist destination, Boljoon has been famous for its rich history. Its church is one of the oldest in the country and within its property, relics and artifacts dating back to the sixteenth century have been unearthed. Even today, Boljoon is a top place for school tours to learn about Cebu's local history.
