The Immaculate Conception Church of Jasaan also known as Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de la Inmaculada Concepción de María is inspired by the baroque style of architecture. It is strategically located at Poblacion, Upper Jasaan, Misamis Oriental. The Church was built in year 1887 under the supervision of a Jesuit priest named Father Juan Herras. According to historians, the Church was an attempt to copy the famous San Ignacio Church of Intramuros, Manila.

Currently, Immaculate Conception Church of Jasaan was declared by the National Museum as a National Cultural Treasure in Northern Mindanao due to its artistic design and cultural values.

If you plan to visit the Church, you can go to Agora Terminal (Cagayan de Oro City) and look for the alley stand for Jasaan jeepney liner. The fare will cost you 30 pesos only and the travel time will be approximately 1.5 to 2 hours.
