The Catheral was situated in the city center and eventhough it's in the middle of the city its beauty remains amids the urbanized metropolitan community.

I went to San Sebastian Church for daytime photography. The spires are beautiful, and I took a beautiful zoom shot of it. The inside of the church is equally breathtaking.

I went back at night and was pleasantly surprised that the facade was illuminated. Could it be because there were festivities then? My night shots turned out to be moire beautiful than m daytime shots.

The history of this cathedral brought me back to see it again. I first visited in 1980 and returned to see it again this year. It is beautifully adorned with huge golden pillars. The alter is stunning and the stained glass windows stand out in the midday light. The only drawback is the city has allowed vendors to set up giant tents across the street and it is now impossible to photograph the front of the cathedral. They should remove these venders so that this historic landmark can be viewed by visitors. The venders belong in the marketplace. You have to wonder why the city officials would allow this to happen. PAYOFF????????

A place for worship. This is not a monument, but the parish church of Bacolod. There are endless well attended masses on Sunday as well as many on weekdays. It's typical of the nice old secondary churches in a larger town.
