Chapel of San Pedro Calungsod

SM recently unveiled their very modern chapel at the South Road Properties. The chapel was originally named Shrine of Mary, Mother of God. However, it was renamed Chapel of San Pedro Calungsod in honor of the first Cebuano saint.
The Chapel of San Pedro Calungsod has 14 sunken gardens and can accommodate at least 800 people. It also has pockets of blue lights and an “enigmatic profusion of talismanic walls.”
The modern design of the chapel is stunning. And the details are just so beautiful. If the chapel – the first completed structure at the SM Seaside City complex at the SRP – is an indication of what the future complex will look like, I’m pretty confident that the Cebuanos will not be disappointed. Actually, I dare say that the chapel is the best-looking structure in Cebu today.
Check out the Chapel of San Pedro Calungsod at the SRP.
Sign at the entrance. Looking so awesome.
When viewed upclose, the walls look like random pieces placed in various parts of the plot.
But when viewed from a distance, the spaces disappear and the walls for one huge beautiful structure.

Awesome job, SM! I’m sure the mall and the highrises are going to be sooo good!
