This Catholic Cathedral is situated in the center of San Fernando City, La Union's capital. Right outside is the town plaza and City hall. Inside this relatively old church, one can find peace while meditating. Well worth a visit

Everytime I come for a vacation, I never missed visiting this church. It's taking me back to my younger years, reminiscing my school days beside this church. It has a nice facade and interior. You would love the altar.

Next stop was Cathedral of St. William the Hermit in San Fernando La Union. And we actually stayed for the 5pm English Mass. It is one of those old churches which underwent a repainting job. Nevertheless, it was well-maintained and you can definitely feel the...More

I was here for a christening, the church is nice and plain, no over the top like a lot of churches can be, hopefully meaning the money is spent on the people and not the building. Nice service and seems to be a popular church....More
