Immaculate Conception Cathedral, Puerto Princesa

3.6
#1 of 7 in Historic Sites in Palawan Province
Greeting its visitors with a baby blue and white Gothic facade, Immaculate Conception Cathedral casts a quaint silhouette along one of the central avenues of Puerto Princesa. A signifier of Spanish colonialism, consecrated in 1910 and declared an Apostolic Vicariate in 1955, the church lies at the heart of the island’s Catholic community, hosting daily services. On entering the interior of the church, warm blue hues wash over you from turquoise stained glass, contrasting against the hanging yellow lanterns and dark wooden beams. Stop by for mass or visit later in the day to simply bask in a serene environment.

  • The Cathedral of Puerto Princesa is different from what we can see in France and is very pretty! If you get the chance, attend a mass the evening around 5 pm! Margot and Pauline

  • We managed for a short while to visit the Immaculate Conception Catholic Cathedral in Puerto Princesa City during a city tour, January 2016. The white & blue color painting of the exterior of the church is outstanding & symbolical of Our Mother Mary. The park in front of the cathedral was not completely done. The outer architecture is typical from the Spanish era. The inner architecture, ceiling, nave, altars & floorings are intricate & beautifully done. The covered path at one side entrance is very practical for the parishioners during rainy & hot seasons.
  • On 25 of September 2017, I was married to my Beautiful wife in this Beautful Cathedral ..... I want to thank everyone of the church, making us both feel so welcomed. Thank You So Much for giving us a Perfect & Beautiful Wedding
