I attended Mass here. The Cathedral is historic with a great frontage to the plaza. I agree that the nave is not the most decorated or impressive in Philippines. Pleasing to see so many at Mass. i hope they commence a sensitive restoration.

The Catherdal has a square opposite so good for photos. There is not so much to see inside the ceiling is painted with biblical themes but not the most impressive. The walls show signs of serious deterioration from water, there are no windows here.

Maasin Cathedral is worth a look if you're in the city, the contrast between the outside and inside of the building is interesting, particularly when compared to many of the others in the country. Well looked after and a peaceful place in the heart of...More

This small and lovely cathedral is made of coral blocks carved from the ocean lying before it. Maasin is the capital of Southern Leyte and there are a reasonable amount of resources there, including food and housing, to facilitate your trip to Maasin. Facilities are...More
