Its sits with its façade and belfry close to and facing the shore as do most churches of the era.

Its bell tower, the tallest in the province, served as look out for monitoring of maurading pirates. Climbing the top is quite a challenge but the breathtaking view of the Negros seaside and the town plaza surrounded by majestic acacia trees.
