If you guys love to roam around Cebu, please dont forget to drop by in one of the oldest church in Cebu, Metropolitan Cathedral. Place is so solemn, peace and you will really feel the spirit of Jesus Christ.

This church is not that busy and has this peaceful vibe compared to its neighbor church, Basilica del Santo Niño. English mass is conducted in the afternoon, the rest of the mass is conducted in Cebuano dialect.

This is one of Cebu's oldest and interesting designed church. They have mass which can be attended. It is located in Colon part of the city and not far from Santo Nino Cebu's most popular church to visit.

We attended 11:00 AM mass last Sunday, March 19, 2017. I always love this church since I was young, now visiting from New York, I was surprised that it was air conditioned, love it, with the heat outside really felt so good.
