Cebu’s Cathedral

The Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral is the ecclesiastical seat of the Metropolitan Archdiocese of Cebu. Completed in 1909, the construction of the church underwent several delays. And, in fact, during the second world war, the cathedral was one of the casualties of the Cebu bombing.

Today, the Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral is one of the most visited structures in Cebu. A Cebu heritage tour is never complete without a stop at the beautiful church.

When was the last time you dropped by the cathedral? Check out these photos I snapped during my recent visit.

Church interior. Notice the golden ‘retablo.’  Looking really regal.

A small gallery near the front door showcases images of various saints.

Images of the Our Lady of Guadalupe and other saints.
