I have visited this place last summer of 2016, as compared today the grasses have grown because it is already rainy season and this green environment makes the Church more beautiful😊

An absolute must-see! We arrived in the morning at around 7 am and despite the hoard of tourists taking photos with those infernal contraptions called "selfie sticks" (lol), the church is still a great place for self-reflection. The garden near the entrance is also perfect for some quiet time. The cathedral's architecture is beautiful. Make sure to get a photo... More

Identified my UNSECO as a World Heritage Site and for good reason. This church was in existence 200 before the United States was a country. Steep in history this is a must see location.

The baroque - architectural design was beautiful, and we were amazed how this church was able to withstand earthquakes and other calamities.

My heart skips a beat when I saw this remarkable church. I fell in love with it! The Church stood the test of time. It has survived wars and countless tremors and typhoons. Although it was partially damage during the huge earthquakes of 1865 and 1885, reconstructions and repairs made the church looks generally unscathed.

The building was preserved well, and the sky was clear when i visited. Making me enjoying the view so much. We had lunch at the restaurant at the side of the church, they serve local cuisine and the taste was okay.

The church is amazing, being a Roman Catholic makes me think how they have build such majestic and huge Churches in the 1900s. You should visit and get a glimpse of what's inside. I recommend this for all ages.

Our group only took photos outside and didnt get in. We went to this church after the sand dunes so it might have contributed to our lack of energy to explore.
