The cathedral itself is stunning but it was the relaxed but very beautiful nature of the open air service held for the people of Cebu to attend. Cebuanos come from miles around including from Leyte to worship and there was an air of relaxed prayer...More

Actually, the first time I became aware of this cathedral was when I was walking in the area and noticed bevy men at the entry doors, dressed in black suits and sunglasses, shepherding an army of BMW's to convey a newly wedded couple away. Having...More

We were surprised to see the grandeur of this Cathedral when we attended a wedding of a friend's son. Although this church is overshadowed by the more popular Sto. Nino church, it is still worth a visit. The interior is like most Philippine churches. The...More

A must visit church when you are in Cebu. They have mass almost every hour everyday. This is my favorite church in the Philippines. Very solemn, I feel renewed each time I come here. Also, parking is not a problem, except on Sundays.

This Cathedral is often overshadowed by the Shrine of the Infant Jesus, but it should be equally important to visit. The church exudes reverence as soon as you enter. The piety of the people is so humbling to me. Beautiful altar and religious art inside...More

Not far from the Basilica, this Cathedral offers another place to pray. It is another testament to how Catholicism is deeply ingrained in the Cebuanos. Masses are offered on a schedule and it is open all day
