Immaculate Conception Cathedral, Puerto Princesa

(3.7/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Another cathedral. As beautiful as most. It's a shame that so much money obviously goes in to upkeep when there are so many poor neighbourhoods nearby.
  • An old church in Puerto Princesa. There's a plaza nearby exhibiting historicals of the place.
  • This cathedral is originally owned by the Recollect Fathers and the exterior design was patterned with the Basilica Minore of San Sebastian in Quiapo, Manila. This church is gothic on the outside but native in the inside... The ceiling is carved by the inmates of Iwahig Penal Colony.
  • I visited this beautiful midd size church in 2014
  • Because my bf i want to see there again
