The cathedral and grounds are a little tired and need some work. The spires of the cathedral are nice architecture. Inside the church is some lovely carved woodwork.

this church had a wedding while we were there which in itself was great to watch via a lattice screen so as not to disturb the wedding. There is a lot of amazing history,museum pieces, stone walls of immensely thick blocks & a internment wall inside the church complex.

We walked around the city for an afternoon and came to see the cathedral. It's a nice, peaceful and cool place to stop a while. No entrance fee. Do take the time to visit the restored garrison behind the cathedral (the site of the Palawan massacre) which is also free.

Very big church exactly opposite Plaza Cuartel and adjacent to Rizal Park. No body inside but seems that it is well maintained.

We went here because well we are Catholics and since this is part of their City tour then we opted to visit here after a long tiring day. It was clean. Imagine a lot more churches here in the Philippines where people are around them selling random stuff...(Jesus will get mad at them..No Pun intended) The Church was cozy and... More

This cathedral is not very old as the original cathedral was bombed and destroyed during World War II, so it was built after the war.

It was interesting to see this well preserved church in the city, it didn't look like a typical church in the Philippines. I love the pastel colour of the building it is quite striking and vibrant loved it.

It is one of the famous tourist destinations. Its a blue & white coloured cathedral. Beautiful craftmanship. Located along the Rizal avenue opposite the Plaza Cuartel in the Barangay Liwanag. Must visit.
