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.

A very nice church almost at the heart of the city. We almost make it a point to visit 1-2 churches everytime we go out town to pay respect as well as to thank the Lord for the blessings we have been getting.

By the time we entered the Cathedral, there was that feeling of peace and safety. It is one place to go when and if one needs peace.

A good place to pray and talk to God. Beautiful church in the city. It's one of the oldest. Lots of people come to visit and pray on this church

Many people of the Philippines believe Catholicism, and therefore there are churches everywhere. San Pedro Cathedral, maybe one of the biggest in Davao, is a modern construction, and since I expected something historical, I was disappointed a little bit.
