  • Check out the huge murals depicting miraculous events associated with the church and the Banos area. Each has story written on the bottom of the canvas.
  • Cathedral right in Centro! Elegant and beautiful.
  • Tall basilica towering around banos, very pretty and cool to takw pictures
  • You see this from anywhere in Banos. I only went inside once and that was when an orchestra was playing some famous film songs like Mission Impossible etc. I don't know if that is common but it's pretty cool.
  • You can see this gorgeous cathedral from anywhere in Banos, its a very good reference point for meeting people.
