“"Km Zero" of Davao City”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

My "Kilometer Zero" of Davao because it is where the first settlers set up residence. To this day, the cathedral is still the locals place of worship. Take the time to check out the side chapel on the right, next to the candle section. This is the original altar ( unfortunately repainted to a noveau and glossy tint) and gives an idea of the size of the original structure.

“At the heart of the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Everyone can access whenever they come to Davao City before their shopping itinerary. It can accommodate more people. A very nice architectural design with large open sides to get more air.

Best place to attend mass at its schedule.

“A holy place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

When lonely and sad and happy too - go to church and pray. Right in the center of the city. A holy place with daily masses.
