“Not a Major Tourist Attraction”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

Lucena City is a city of almost 200,000 people, but it really doesn't have much to see. It does have an impressive location, set at the foot of a volcano, but the city itself is drab and run-down. The only thing to recommend it really is the locals, who are a friendly, hospitable bunch.

If you are stuck in town waiting for a boat to Marinduque or a train to Bicol, you might want to stop by the Lucena Cathedral. If the town has any landmark, it it is this thing. It is a large, solid late 19th century church, set back a little from the main street. It is worth a quick look for those people in town, but don't go out of your way to see this building. It isn't one of the finer or more unique historic churches in the country.
