So, our second day tour at Bohol started with a visit to the 3rd oldest Church in the province.  We visited Dauis church. The church is known for its beautiful interiors, walls and ceilings were painted by Ray Francia and Canuto Avila in the 1920s. There is also a well at the foot of the altar that is believed to be miraculous, being only meters away from the sea shore the water is absolutely fresh and has been known to have healing powers as it cures the sick.  My friend B and I got to take home some and when I tasted it, it really is fresh.  I absolutely advise you to visit this place if you're going to Bohol.
