Although many devotees throng to this cathedral, it is a good place to reflect and meditate. Both sides of the cathedral have chapels. For visitors from other places, this cathedral is a landmark to visit.

The Cathedral is located downtown across the street fro The Davao City Hall. It is a truly beautiful church and when we attended Mass The Bishop was officiating. A really nice experience!

After all the tours and shopping, we visited the San Pedro Cathedral, which is just a five-minute walk from our hotel. The church is very clean, very quiet, and the ambiance is simply inspiring. The church patio with the imposing bell tower is so beautiful.

Really impressed mainly by the affluence of people attending the service. The Cathedral, modern round building, was completely full, and people were equally standing, praying and singing outside! Iconic building for Davao City, so give yourself a moment to pass by!

I think is worth to visit when sightseeing in the city. Interesting architecture. There was a wedding when we went, so it was nice to see that as well.

Solemn mass celebration last sunday, well ventilated with 3 huge ceiling fans. I was wearing a pullover and was expecting to feel warm but never did. Attended English mass 6pm. Very good choir.

Nice and big church with interesting and unusual design. I been here few times and the last time for wedding of my friend. Located in the center, just in front of City Hall. Must See while in Davao!

This is a big Catholic church close to the main downtown easy to access. It can give one a good view of the City's religious relic and people who go there for spiritual needs.
