The patroness of Puerto Princesa is the Immaculate Conception. It's not surprising, therefore, that the city's cathedral was named after her. I decided to visit this place not so much as to write a review on it as a place of worship, but as a...More

The cathedral is currently undergoing renovation during our visit. Nevertheless, there’s nothing special about the cathedral inside and outside. Just be wary of the pesky mendicants outside the church because they will keep asking money from you until you give them some.

I feel it’s nothing special, just a building renovated. I’ve visit the other church, “St Paul Metropolitan Cathedral” in Vigan. It’s most beautiful than this church

Good example of historical church of the Old Spanish style. In a historical area of the city with other attractions and shrines across the street. Beautiful park with informative history boards written in English. Open on Sundays.
