San Sebastian Cathedral, Bacolod

4.0
Appreciate the imposing stone facade of San Sebastian Cathedral, the seat of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Bacolod. The church was buit in 1876, and has since undergone many renovations, picking up a life-size statue of Saint Sebastian along the way. Its architecture tells its history, and when you enter the first thing you’ll see is the magnificent altar. The church's interior also boasts a white ceiling with golden details, as well as rows of wooden pews, while its churchyard contains two bells that once adorned the bell towers. See the cathedral's columbarium, where the remains of bishops lie. For San Sebastian Cathedral and beyond, use our Bacolod trip itinerary planning tool to get the most from your Bacolod vacation.

  • I passed by the church a lot during my 4 days in Bacolod. This is right in front the plaza and looks really pretty at night. The church bells are on the right side of the entrance.  more »

  • A magnificent structure, well-preserved from the Spanish colonial era. My my third cousin Primo Ramon took us here when we were in Bacolod to visit Dad's ancestral home and to watch the Ceres Negros vs. Felda United in the AFC Cup on March 15, 2017 at Panaad Park...
