I would probably say (no exaggeration or whatsoever) I felt energized once again when I saw and entered the cathedral because of its beautiful historical look. This was my first stop in Marinduque after a long commute from Manila. I was just in time for the 6pm mass.

It was an experience going to the island of Marinduque. One major place I really love is the Boac Cathedral, it depicts the perfection of a church illuminating the culture and history of the island. From the location at the top of the hill, to its design and layout. This church will provide the serenity and the holiness of the... More

A cathedral sitting on a hill, a very quiet place to reflect and to appreciate old architectural church design. Defines the old cathedral facade once you stepped into the church. Very Historic, worth seeing and visiting. :)

The small island offers some exciting finds, and one of these is the Boac Cathedral. Grand is one word to describe it. Sitting on top of the hill, quietly watching the old town that boast of very old culture and tradition.

the structure is a marriage of the old and the new. Although not the oldest church in Marinduque, the grand architechture and the details used to adorn it cannot just be brushed off. The interior is beautiful even the carvings at the door. It is also nice to read on the captions around the church as these are very informative... More

This is century old church, treasure of Marinduque I say. Well managed & preserved one, I love the design on the altar and the ceiling. Noticed the carving on the huge door, beautiful. What the exciting part of this location is the challenge of going thru Cathedral w/c is situated on the hill at Mataas na Bayan, literally high! A... More

The cathedral has this nice, ancient, rustic feel. Loved the carving on the doors, the huge bell and the whole facade.
