This lovely old cathedral from the Spanish era should be 'must' visit when in Vigan. It is centrally located and has been well preserved. It is typical of old Spanish church architecture of the northern Philippines.

Definitely worth a visit if you are in this part of the Philippines. Gorgeous church with original tiled floors from centuries ago. Lots of beautiful detail. On the main town square.

We heard mass here on a Sunday, there is an English service at 6:30pm Sundays and 5:00pm Saturdays. Beautiful interiors and great acoustic for the choir -- they sound like a Gregorian choral chant.
