“Crowded but beautiful interiors”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

We were in Bacolod for the Masskara festival and decided to attend Sunday mass a the San Sebastian cathedral. The cathedral itself has an old facade, but inside it is big and roomy, with pastel yellow ceiling and golden borders. It tends to be popular, and filled with people, but we got space to sit. It is a peaceful place to sit and relax, even if you are not Christian.

“magnificent!”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

The Cathedral was beautiful. Go see it: the large doors; the architecture; the sights (beggars, faithful, sounds of it). Light a candle for a soul. Say a little prayer.

“GLORIOUS!”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

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.

“Excellent architecture.”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

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.
