A Golden View Church

The church is very solemn and beautiful. The interior of the church is covered with gold plated altar. It is just a couple of minutes walk from Sto. Niño church.

I came here to pray. Because I find this very sacred. I really like this church. One of the best public places in Cebu. Hopefully they will maintain cleanliness and people should have discipline themselves to avoid throwing thrashes.

Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral is has a very conducive place for prayers. It has hourly masses were pilgrims can offer daily mass suited to their schedules.

The Cathedral is not that big though it shows a glimpse of Cebu's heritage. It is not far from the Basilca of Sto. Nino. Unlike the Basilica, the streets surrounding this church are muddy and smelly so one has to be careful where one steps getting out of the jeep.

The Cebu Cathedral is also known in Cebu aside from the Sto Nino Basilica, It is just near with each other so why don't you visit it too.

This impressive church looks to me even bigger than the Santo Nino church and maybe as it is a cathedral it appears more grandiose.

Only a block away, and a short walk, from the Basilica del Santo Nino, is the Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral. It’s another building with a nice exterior but it didn’t strike me as being very special. The cathedral only took a few minutes to look inside and I was ready to move on. As it is close to the Basilica, it... More

Since this is a Catholic country it was nice to see one of their older churches. Very old and spiritual, worth the walk if you want to spend a bit of time seeing the local folks.
