Looked good from the outside, but couldn't go in because there was work going on inside. However, we did meet up with somebody from the religious school next door and they were extremely helpful.

I been to a few churches throughout Philippines and find them each unique and interesting but this goes have a certain appeal . The colors inside and the architecture of the ceiling are nice . Church is one block from sinking bell tower and two blocks from monopoly tabaco museum and Loag sign just walking distance

A clean white exterior that holds no fancy and makes no false promises. Right in the heart of the city the cathedral is quite beautiful in an understated way. Opposite the sinking bell tower and sadly in the middle of the main town car park, but it is a quiet oasis with a beautiful interior and youare made welcome regardless... More

Unlike some other Filipino Catholic Churches or Cathedrals, St William's has an understated exterior. The interior including the altar is large. Unlike some Churches on Panay Island, it did not quickly 'grab' me with its beauty but if I was a local resident I might be more imbued.

This cathedral is located near the Sinking Bell Tower and behind Mc Donald's. It's not as huge as other cathedrals but it offers a bit of history. It is a nice place to offer a prayer before embarking on an Ilocandia tour.

If you are a photo buff. Then better take a photo of the church while standing in the plaza. The blue dawn skies as the backdraft makes a perfect photo

It is a place that exudes history. It is an old structure that continues to stand strong providing a place for prayers.
