San Sebastian Cathedral, Bacolod
(4/5 based on 120 reviews on the web)
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 travelers who use our custom trip planner, Bacolod holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the San Sebastian Cathedral and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
