We visited in the afternoon and witnessed a church wedding. We felt we were intruding but I am sure the couple did not mind. Since we wanted a quiet place to pray, we went to the small chapel beside the main altar. People there prayed in silence. After that we went outside for reflexology. Those who provided the service were... More

The Cathedral was huge enough for all the parishioners. The design is extravagant. It was walking distance to our hotel.

The church has good architecture. A well planned beautification. One of the oldest parish in Negros Oriental. Beside it, Dumaguete Belfry stands tall. Most beautiful church in Dumaguete City

Known as Dumaguete cathedral for its exquisite architectural design, was constructed way back 1754 and has been reconstructed to last till this date, known to be the oldest stone church in Negros Oriental, a very nice place to pray and visit for Catholics and tourists as well.

Drop by this church on a walking tour from the market, to the park and Belfry, and on the way to Silliman. As with any old Philippine church, it has colorful antique tiles and gilding. It's not too special except for the columns topped with statues at the gates.

But seems window bays are dirty and have seen several empty bottles of bottled water dumped on it. We also noticed that old 20-watts flourescent lamp is installed... More

The Cathedral is a landmark in the city and very well maintained. It would be great if there were NOT a parking lot right in front of it and a garden instead to accentuate the beauty. The columns in front with various saints on them adds some uniqueness to it, however there are other old churches in the Philippines that... More
