Our Lady of Immaculate Conception Cathedral


What’s so unique about this cathedral is the way it looks. It is an angular structure and colored white and blue, nothing like other historical chapels in the Philippines.


 A passing tourist may look twice since at first glance it looks more like a huge office up-close without seeing the spires with crosses and bells. It is truly an unconventional religious structure.


The original church of Our Lady of Immaculate Conception was built in 1871, but it was transformed into a cathedral under Bishop Gregorio Espiga in 1961. The cathedral now stands along Rizal Avenue, which is the most important street in the city. 



The airport, wharf, city hall, important restaurants and hotels, People’s Park, and Plaza Cuartel, as well as the former Vietnamese refugee camp, are all found along Rizal Avenue.
