We popped by as we were n the neighbourhood, but definitely wouldn't have made a trip for this. The outside looks relatively pretty,but the entrance is swarmed by beggars and cripples. We had a look inside, but the inside was not much to talk about, ruined by this weird obsession with neon lighting.

We visited in the afternoon and witnessed a church wedding. We felt we were intruding but I am sure the couple did not mind. Since we wanted a quiet place to pray, we went to the small chapel beside the main altar. People there prayed in silence. After that we went outside for reflexology. Those who provided the service were... More

The Cathedral was huge enough for all the parishioners. The design is extravagant. It was walking distance to our hotel.

The church has good architecture. A well planned beautification. One of the oldest parish in Negros Oriental. Beside it, Dumaguete Belfry stands tall. Most beautiful church in Dumaguete City
