The inside of this Cathedral is much more interesting to the eye than the outside. The accoustics are poor inside but excellent through the PA system outside. The prayer chapel to thecside is a delight.

solemn and quiet . you can find this church in the heart of the city . All people gather here at all times . Sunday masses are the busiest . Try to visit on weekdays and you will feel the holiness of this place . The chapel in the side is also a good place to reflect and pray .

The church looks great at night also and it just right in front of the plaza and a few steps away from SM Bacolod and Manokan Country. Do not miss visiting this church as its location is not hard to catch,

The church can be seen once you arrived in the city. I love the old structure of the church. There are just some beggar outside the door but no vendors. It is a sacred church which people visit.
