Puerto Princesa Cathedral

Posted by admin on September 26, 2007

In 1872, a Spanish expedition proclaimed the Immaculate Conception of Mary as the patroness of Puerto Princesa. On that same year, the first mass was celebrated in the same place where the present cathedral now stands. It was almost a century later in 1961 under the late Bishop Gregorio Espiga that the cathedral was built. Its angular structure, different from most churches, provides visitors an interesting glimpse of unconventional religious edifice.

It is located in Barangay Liwanag, Rizal Avenue, Puerto Princesa City, between 5-10 minutes from the city proper. Take a public utility vehicle and ask to be let off in front of the church located midtown.
