I love the architecture of this church. It's a good church for weddings. It also has air conditioning. For weddings you'll have to pay 25,000 the last time I searched in order to turn on the air conditioning of the whole church.

As one might expect, this cathedral in the midst of Cebu's old Central Business District is a fairly large ecclesiastical building. However when I went to Mass here, I was struck by how its interior was relatively spartan compared to many other churches and more...More

I thought it was hard to reach here but since the Cathedral is one of the popular destinations when visiting Cebu, especially for Catholic travelers, it was easy. The place is also near the Sto. Niño Church as well, so it's easy to find. One...More

It is not just the Cathedral of the diocease of Cebu, the seat of the Bishop (while there is a chapel at his residence). it is an impressive structure and symbolic of the Catholic faith with very good Architecture.

This is the oldest church in the Philippines and built during 1800’s in Spanish and made stones. The ceiling inside of the church is made by glass . It’s a beautiful church and big. It’s a Catholic Church.

This is for those who want to reflect peacefully, and do not want the crowd like the one in Sto. Nino. It has ample parking spaces. It is near Sto. Nino, so people can just walk to get there.
