Puerto Princesa Cathedral (Immaculate Conception Cathedral): Our Puerto Princesa City Tour (Urban Tour) First Stop

I'm glad that our first stop is the Puerto Princesa Cathedral or the Immaculate Conception Cathedral because I have a thing for churches and always make sure I visit one whenever I travel.

This is considered as the center of spiritual refuge in Puerto Princesa.  To be honest, it wasn't as grand as I expected.  It was had an evident medieval Eruopean influence but built on cement.  It was painted in blue which matches the sky.

Before being structured into a cathedral in 1961, this used to be a small chapel that was levelled from a hill by Spanish Colonizers that arrived in Puerto Princesa on March 4, 1872.


It was even more simple on the inside.  I just love the solemn and eeriness of the church.

Although Travel Tripster Kurt is not a Catholic like me, I think the church has a calming effect on him too.  He surprised me with his DSLR.  He took this lovely shots.  He has always been the one more passionate with photography than me so I think it was the right move for him to finally get his own camera.  I thought his camera was new but he said he bought it a long time ago but never had the chance to show it to me. 

Opposite this is Plaza Cuartel.
