Immaculate Conception Cathedral, Puerto Princesa

(340+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site Tourist Spot
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. Make Immaculate Conception Cathedral part of your personalized Puerto Princesa itinerary using our Puerto Princesa trip itinerary builder.

  • Beautiful historic cathedral locatedmright beside the Plaza Cuartel in Puerto Pricesa Palawan.
  • Although it is not as old as most of the Spanish Era churches in the Philippines, it is still one church to add to your Visita Iglesia Trip. Its light blue facade makes it look good.
  • A beautiful Parish church in the heart of Puerto Princesa
  • Beautiful blue cathedral. Inside is huge.
  • The cathedral is still undergoing a major renovation project.
