“Great Landmark, right across from BPI to for ATM access”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

You can't miss it, easy parking, lots of street vendors. Visit early morning or towards evening as it can be a Cement heater. If your looking for BPI ATM its just across the street heading north.

“Belfry, well worth seeing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

The Bellfry is situated beside St. Catherine of Alexandria Cathedral in the middle of the city. It is one of the oldest bell towers in the Philippine, nice and ancient architecture. You can climb the tower and have a nice view over the area. There is an part where you can light a candle and say a prayer. Unfortunately there are also some ugly graffiti on it and beggars at the entrance and on the main-street. A must see if you visit Dumaguete, really nice.

“Graffiti all over the walls”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

:( we made it to the top (it was only a short climb), took pictures, read the awful graffiti on the walls where the bell was, and took the steps down again. All in under 15 minutes.
